    Help! I have just started getting an error message when
    starting windows XP. It is titled 'WJView Error' and
    reads 'ERROR:Could not execute main:The system cannot
    find the file specified'

    I have the same problem on my older desktop running
    Windows 98.

    How do I solve!!!

    Thanks in advance. Howard.

    Go to Start | Run. Type in msconfig. On the start up tab uncheck any
    reference to wjview.exe

    was part of a programme that my virus software had
    removed as being suspect. Howard.

    WJview is the interface program of the Microsoft (Java) Virtual machine,
    used to run Java programs. This was probably a piece of nasty written
    in Java that an AV or anti-spyware program has removed, leaving the
    WJView sitting there with nothing to launch.

    Start - Run and run MSConfig.exe
    Look in the Startup page for a line that has WJView in the Command
    column - you may need to drag the divider to its right in the headers so
    as to see enough. Uncheck the line, and perhaps also check what was the
    Java program, after the wjview.exe on the line.

    OK out, don't bother to reboot now, but next time you do there will be a
    panel come up about 'you are using the System Configuration tool' -
    check the 'don't show again' box and Exit
