What is the matter with my connection


Some time ago, I installed software to join 2 PC's. (PC Anywhere, I believe). There was a cable to connect the two. This was to copy files from my old computer to the new one. (E-machines)

I believe at the time, I was getting warning messages saying that my hardware (the cable connection) wasn't working - BUT, IT DID WORK.

After copying everything I wanted I disconnected the two computers.

From that time on, I get a message at startup asking me to proceed with installing the software needed to operate the connection. Thei happens 3 times, to which I respond "cancel" three times, and finally I get another message saying that my Hardware may not work correctly.

I've since tried to connect a digital camera to this same computer connection, with no luck. I suspect because it is still internally trying to resolve the initial "problem".

Can anyone tell me how to make this go away.

I wrote to e-machines, who said it must be a software problem. I thenwrote to Microsoft who said that since the Windows XP is a bundled product, I should contact the manufacturer.

If you need to know the exact messages, I can write them down the next time I start up.

Thank you, Paul Curtis.
