    Not a Vista file. Try to figure out what fast.exe is. Then disable it from
    running at startup. Have any old power toys installed? One of those used a
    fast.exe.

    The file is a part of the "fast user switching" "feature" of windows. I
    disabled it with msconfig but I still get an error message on every bootup.
    Yes I did have xp powertoys installed at the time of my upgrade. Of course it
    wont uninstall so now I guess I'm stuck with a reformat to fix it.

    Thanks!
