    On startup I receive the following, and it flashes across the screen for just a moment: "g program not found."

    Can anyone say what this means? I installed a trial of Diskeeper 2011 just before this started but other than that my system has been the same as usual.


    Thank you.

    Hi there and welcome back to PCHF

    This is before Windows starts, right?

    Hi, and thanks for your response.

    Yes. it does occur before Windows starts.

    I did an internet search this is some of what I found:

    "I installed Diskeeper Pro Premier 2009 on my computer and need to run chkdsk before it will run automatically. When I reboot my computer, chkdsk says it is missing files and can not run. Soooo, I used my recovery CD for Windows XP and got CHKDSK to run, and it said that there were files that needed to be fixed, but it didn't fix them."



    1. "--try it again using chkdsk /p this time. should replace the missing file(s)


    " (But) I get a blue screen with this message....g program not found - skipping AUTOCHECK"



    2. --Do c:/r
    3. "Fix your BootExecute registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\
    CurrentControlSet\Control\
    Session Manager\BootExecute

    It should read "autocheck autochk *".


    I honestly don't know what to do or even if this is a serious error (but it certainly doesn't sit well with me).

    Any suggests or comments will be appreciated.

    Thanks again.

    smiglips: I think your issue is a different one: it would warrant its own thread. In the advanced options, you would go to Safe Mode and see if you can start that way. Then you might check Event Log to see what's happened to make it do that.

    Would a "Windows Repair" be in order (using the Windows XP disk that came with my computer)?

    Thanks again.

    Hi.

    Yes, when I start the PC I get the following.

    "g program not found - skipping AUTOCHEC"

    The PC seems to be working fine but still I'm concerned.

    Would a "Windows Repair" be in order (using the Windows XP disk that came with my computer)?

    Thanks again.

    All you need to do is open regedit goto
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\CONTROL\Session Manage

    and change it to
    BootExecute:REG_MULTI_SZ:autocheck autochk *

    you will find its set to g: something

    Thank you Samuria.

    Do I have it correct when you state that I should delete "Session Manager" and instead substitute "BootExecute......"?

    Thanks again.

    No you dont delete anything in session manager look at the right hand side for bootexcute and double click on that and change the value to autocheck autochk *
