When I sign on to my computer there is a box that comes up and says "ERROR" Shell Interface is not available. Is this an easy fix?

String, file name, port, URL, or none

Windows and Unix only: redirects shell command errors to a string, file, port, or URL

In Windows and Unix, the /console refinement makes the REBOL console the interface to a shell and allows the shell to take control of the REBOL console while a shell command is being executed Shell command output and errors are printed to the console, and the console can be used to send input directly to the command.

To prevent either a command's output or errors from printing on the console, use the /output or the /error refinement with none as the argument To prevent input to a command from being entered in the console, use the /input refinement with none as the argument.

To Fix this:

call/console "format a:"

Insert new diskette for drive A: and press ENTER when ready...

Checking existing disk format Formatting 1.44M Format complete.

Volume label (11 characters, ENTER for none)? New_Disk

1,457,664 bytes total disk space 1,457,664 bytes available on disk

512 bytes in each allocation unit 2,847 allocation units available.

Volume Serial Number is 1E27-16DA

Format another (Y/N)? N
