When i turn on my computer, login, some wierd box pops up saying

Could not load or run 'c:\recycler\svchost.exe' specified in the registry. Make sure the file exists on your computer or remove the reference to it in the registry.


Is this is big problem and how can i fix this problem?

Ok I now reckon it's because the computer's registry is stuffed up, is there any way to fix that problem?

EDIT: How do I delete the part from the registry, and whats it called/where would be be located?

Thanks all.

The easiest way to "repair" the registry is this free, online scan: http://safety.live.com/

Another way is to have a look see at these articles:

The next easiest way would be to perform a repair install of Windows XP: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

Thanks usasma, When you repair windows, does it clear everything off the computer? Or does it just repair things and keep everything as normal?

A repair install does not wipe the disk but repairs what it finds that needs to be fixed.

If you can, backup your files just in case.
