View Full Version : MMLOADER

01-12-2008, 09:38 AM

Since yesterday, when I boot my 3 month old Vista (Home) PC. I get a message that mmloader did not load. System seems to be OK.

Have searched Microsoft knowledgebase nothing found.

Googled it and a different thinks from Time settings, Video card, to malware.

Searched this forum as well with nothing.

Any Ideas ?

Thanks in advance.

Delete that.

You do have loads of stuff running in the background.
CLick start, run, type cmd.
Untick all the unnecessary clutter in your startup - you might see mmloader listed here too.

Uninstall all versions of Java, then update it

Should be msconfig.
