    I get the same error message, dell is telling me I need to buy an external hard drive and reset the laptop to factory settings? Is this really necessary, I think it has something to do with my superantivirus software.

    Are you using a retail, released version? A breakpoint is usually something inserted into the code by the developer to stop execution at a certain point so that they can determine what's going on at that point and are not usually found in released software. Have you tried getting an update from Symantec? What version are you running?

On the odd chance that you are not in a Corporation (where they require you to use that product) Avast and AVG (both free for home use) might be a better solution....just a thought...will let mansnes pursue with you...Tango

Cannot access AOL

mimboot.exe is the startup application for Musicmatch Jukebox. It does not need to start with Windows. It looks like you may have deleted or unsuccessfully uninstalled Musicmatch Jukebox. Reinstalling the application should resolve the issue. If you don't want the program after the re-install simply uninstall it again in add/remove programs.

Please note: this can also be a trojan horse. If you haven't already I would suggest running a good anti-virus and anti-spyware program.

Hope this helps
