I installed something call USB20 driver for WinME in my xp operating system (dell alienware sentia), i thought it was for card reader driver. the installation was fail though. but since then whenever i start the laptop i got notification "Install Program for Windows 2000 Drivers" it wants me to send error report to microsoft. i have sent couple of times, but still getting this annoying popup in my stratup. how can i get rid of this?????? i guess whenever i start machine this drivers USB20 tries to run and get failure, but i can't find it to uninstall.

Well I normally refuse to help people with WinXP, but you had something awesome as Windows 2000 in your title, that got my attention. Try removing it manually from program files (or wherever it is), remove it from the registry, use msconfig to disable it at start up, install the proper drivers for your device. Restart.
but as i said i couldn't find the driver anywhere. is there anyway i could find this culprit???

If the app is not there, then look in your Startup folder in the start menu, it may be sitting there.
I was going to go to the dell site for you, but you didnt post the Alienware model number.
Also, dont ever mix 98 era drivers with any OS that is 2000 or later.
Windows 95b to Windows ME (95b, 95c, 98, 98SE, ME) is NOT NT baised Os, it was at best a modded Win32 subsystem. Windows 2000 and higher (2003 server, XP, 2008 Server, Vista, 7) is all Windows NT. NT and the old Windows OSes are not compatable.
Just FYI, I didnt include the Original Windows 95 and 95a, as how they are still 16 bit OSes.
