I installed a New 80 GB drive as C:, after Fdisk and

Format, I installed Windows XP Home, Service Pack2 (from

the CD), Norton Systemworks 2003 Professional with

seperate Firewall 2003, and the defragmentor Program

Diskeeper, all of which were updated before running Norton

WinDoctor. WinDoctor found 33 errors, including:


** SHORT DESCRIPTION: Missing or Invalid

Application Path Entry


key, "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App

Paths\cmmgr32.exe," refers to an invalid application

path, "C:\WINDOWS\System32\cmmgr32.exe."


The file cmmgr32.exe is not on my PC, although there is a

cmmgr32.hlp in C:\windows\system32

What exactly is the function of the missing exe file, and

where and how do I get a copy of it?


More generally, what is going on when WinDoctor finds so

many errors on a new installation, 31 of which look like

refers to a missing file, "fde.dll."

There is no fde.dll on the PC.
