Re: winmail.exe message on my computer.

Winmail.exe can be a legitimate windoze component, but in this case it's probably a Virus. Scan your hard drives with your favorite updated Anti-Virus or install one (preferably up to date) and scan your hard drive/drives in safe mode (by pressing F8 on boot then once in safe mode scan them). That should tell you whether it is a virus or not. If not, you have repair options that can be explored. They will depend on the OS version you are running.
I hope this helps.

Hello, I have Vista and everytime after my computer boots, I get a pop-up that states: KBD EXE is not working. What is this and how do I fix this problem? Thanks, Pat

Assuming that once it starts everything is OK and the computer functions normally, try this:
Right above the start ball, there is a command line. In that white space, type MSCONFIG.
When the window opens, click on the startup tab. Find the KBD.EXE command and uncheck the box next to it. This will tell it not to run.
Now restart the computer. In Vista you'll get a message that a program was blocked. Tell it to run the blocked program. When it opens (the system configuration utility), check the little box that says not to display it again. Now everything should work.

Will not boot, error message


Im sorry to hear about your luck. Basically this error message is letting you know that one of your important windows system files is corrupt or missing.

Problem is every solution requires you to use a cd. Does the PC have USB drives ?

My research of that file name indicates it is most likely a trojan of some sort. If it is missing, your antivirus probably removed it.

To remove the message, open MSConfig and goto the startup tab. Uncheck the item associated with CSRCS.exe

If you have windows 2000 you will need to find a copy of MSConfig from the internet.

Good Luck.

Windows Mail Error (0x800C0155,2)

I resolved this problem by creating a new user account with administration rights. Logged on as the new user. Then logged off and logged back on using the user account that had problems and hey presto everything was working normally again. It seemed that in creating the new administration account windows repaired any corrupted files that was causing problems.

I Have Problem On Startup

Dear sir/madam,

it is a basic startup problem with that application. so, you can solve this easily.but, you have to do or know something about microsoft configuration.

In the start menu, go to run and type the following command,


then click the startup tab. here you have to find that antivirus application name or related name.

(for example: xxx.exe, xyz)

if you find that exactly, then uncheck the box of that application name. give apply and ok.

you need to restart the computer now, if u have no problem to restart now means, you can do that or after some time.

after restarting the computer, the microsoft configuration application comes automatically in the desktop.

now you have to check the box in the front of ms configuration and give ok.

hereafter, it wont starts.

thank you.
