Hi Richard

I think 'remind.exe' may belong to zip drive (iomega) software, have you deleted the drivers for a zip recently??

Anyway, its telling you what to do... Go to Start-Run and type sysedit in the run box.

That will open up all your .ini files in a cascaded window.

Close all but the 'win.ini' and then search for 'remind.exe' in it.

When you find the line its on, insert REM -space- at the start, save and close the edit page, restart your computer.

It would be a good idea to backup the win.ini file to a floppy before you start, just in case. If you stuff these files up you may have to resort to reloading windows.

If the file is a leftover from you deleting applications instead of uninstalling, it shows the trouble that can arise.
