Default Corel Paint Shop

Ok I have a problem. Whenever I turn on my computer and head to the desktop, an error keeps popping up asking for a CD for this program. Anyone know how to get rid of this problem?

P.S. I tried getting rid of the program, however, its not in the list of add/remove programs nor in other uninstaller programs.

I am going to venture an oppion that what you need to do is to re-install the software. I believe that your current installation was not a complete install. What do other forum members have to say about this matter?

Ok I went to msconfig and deleted all the files associated with it. Rebooted and no error message. Thanks.

Also I want to delete the files (the ones I just disabled) that are on msconfig startup list. Is there any way to do that?

I've tried that. It only deleted the folder and not the files on startup in msconfig.

download that but make sure you delete only what you want to delete, dont delete your antivirus entries or firewall if you have one.
