SYMPTOMS

After you install the full version of MSN, The Microsoft Network, you may receive the following error message:

  • There are too many files and folders in the root folder of the hard disk.
  • The Msnver.txt file is missing or damaged.

To resolve this behavior, use the following steps:

  1. If your disk is compressed, consult the compression program's instructions or manufacturer to uncompress the disk. Test to determine if the behavior has been resolved. If the behavior is resolved, skip the remaining steps. If the behavior is not resolved, continue to the next step.
