Registry data not found

I've got a new laptop from Dell pre-loaded with WindowsXP and Microsoft
Office. It always has "registry data not found" error message on start up and
I have to click OK to get rid of it. Should I worry? Does it matter? If it
does, how do I fix it? Thanks (IT ignoramous!)

Return the machine if you did not yet install your own software on it.

Dell don't want to know - say it's a software issue and should ring software
helpline (and pay) for advice. I can't manage without my laptop anyway - self
employed so use it all the time

Hello Lesley,
Start Run msconfig
Goto the startup tab and check what applications are trying to startup.
One of the applications that is trying to startup is probably generating
this error message.
Check if mhotkey is there, sometimes this can cause that error, but the
error probably isn't limited to this app.
Thanks,

If this error was there from the beginning, they have to fix it. Only
if you installed other software and this cause the problem, Dell may
not be responsible.

I've run msconfig - everything is ticked and mhotkey is there (and ticked)
and boot says everything running OK

Dell have given me instructions on Dell PC Restore which I'll try when I've
finished the critical bit of work I'm in the middle of.

Any other hints?

Thanks, Lesley

Hello Lesley,
Uncheck mshotkey and try again.
One of the items that is loading is more than likely causing the issue.
So you have to uncheck the boxes to not load the items to determine which
one is causing the issue.
Thanks,
Darrell Gorter[MSFT]
