Reminders to register are one of the few annoyances when using
computer programs (that are usually shareware). This error message is
supposed to remind you to register some software on your computer
(usually optional depending on the software) but it has been "broken".
I'm certain that the program that seems to be the culprit is Adobe
Premiere, a video editor program.

[ Adobe Premiere ]

The root of the problem seems to be register.exe a program that reads
sch files to give you reminders for registering programs. It might be
that the Adobe file is missing or corrupted and is giving this error
message. It can be fixed by not having the register program start up
at all when the computer is first turned on. To do that:

Click Start
Click Run
Type msconfig
Click Startup

Now look in the list (you may have to scroll down).

If you see a line named:


and on the right of the that line is register.exe anywhere or .sch
anywhere then uncheck that line. (If there are more than one lines
exactly like that uncheck them too).

Or if you see a register.exe or similar then that would most likely be
the culprit of this problem. Uncheck that if you see it.

Now click OK. Then if it asks you to restart click OK (or YES).

Now when you restart that error message shouldn't occur. If it does
reoccur then you should continue on, otherwise you're done.

If it reoccurs then when you see the message don't close it. Instead
Press and hold Ctrl (control), and Alt on the keyboard and while
you're still holding those keys down, press the Delete key one time.
Then you can stop holding control and alt. That will bring up the
Taskmanager a program used by Windows to allow you to see what's
running and close it if it stops responding.

Write down the programs running in that list and then type them here
as a "Request for Answer Clarification". That will tell me what
programs might be the cause and then we can narrow it down from there
if necessary. I believe, however, that the above will solve your

This page:


shows another way to stop the remind errors from occurring. The
"msconfig" above is the easier method, however.

You can also try this program:

Startup Manager

It does the same thing as msconfig but will remove the entry rather
than just disabling it. You can also use it (or msconfig) to help
start up your computer faster if you have many programs that run at
startup. You can stop programs from always running at startup and only
run when you tell them to. Also if you have other errors at startup
you can try unchecking one startup item at a time and see if it
happens again. (Don't uncheck the following:
you're antivirus software if it is OK). Those are the only programs
you should not uncheck (in other words leave them checked).

I hope this helps and your startup problems are solved for good. If
anything is unclear or need clarification, then "Request Answer
Clarification" before you "Rate this Answer" and I'll help however I
can on this matter.
