Whenever my XP system starts/reboots, this error dialog box pops up: "Windows can't find D:WindowsSystem32svohost.exe.' Make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button and then click Search."
Why is this message showing up every time I start/reboot my PC? How can I remove it?
