    No, it is actually a standard Windows information message. It certainly goes back to Windows 2000 and possibly before.

    Take a look in the system and application logs to see if there are any clues.

    You might try entering the command sfc /scannow

    Make sure that you have your XP CD to hand.

    The most reliable method is to use system restore and go back to a point before it happend.

    The Roxio CD software is a favourite culprit in my experience

    The real question is what have you just installed or updated, as this is the probable cause.

    Hey nihil

    I ran sfc /scannow before I made the post. Just wanted to double check what this was.

    Doesnt seem to have come up again.

    I "think" sfc might have fixed it.
