    Getting this message on startup:

    Could not load or run"C:\users\name\Locals~\msblauooy.pif specified in the registry.

    Make sure the file exists on your computer or remove the reference to it in the registry.

    I than say OK and startup continues without a hitch.

    Any Help?

    I got some more info on the above. It seems that this is a remnant of some malware or virus that has been deleted. In going through my Norton NIS I came across this in the history:
