Sorry to use bandwidth, but this forum seems to be full of great info, so...


My father has this message when he starts his computer. he did have a virus (magesterb I think)... anyway here is what is says...



RegSvr32


No DLL name specified

Usage: Regsvr32 [/u][/s][/n][/i [:cmdline]]

/u-Unregister Server

/s- Silent:display no message boxes

/c- Console output

/i- Call Dll install passing it on optional[cmd line] :when used with /v

calls DLL uninstall

/n- do not call DLLRegister Server :this option must be used with /i


can I simply replace the file in question?

What uses this file?

Do I need to re-install the program that uses this file.


If this is so off topic, just remove it...I won't be that offended.


Thanks

Scott

Regsvr32 is used to register dll's ocx's, etc. Check your autoexec.bat, registry (in the usual Run and RonOnce keys) etc for an instance of regsvr32 and just delete the reference. Sounds like an entry got corrupted/half deleted and the call to the program exists, but without the proper arguments (like the name of the file to register). There's likely nothing wrong with the file itself, it's just being called incorrectly.

You didn't mention the OS, but if it's one (98, me)with the System Config Utility, you can use it to check and disable any startup items such as this.
