I'm receiving the following Error message when SETI@Home starts up.

FLSHTRAY.OCX or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a File is missing or invalid. HELP!

Thanks Chuck S.

This file is in no way connected with SETI or BOINC (and they don't use any ActiveX controls AFAIK).

"flshtray.ocx belongs to product System Tray Icon v.1.0"

And what is the exact meaning of "SETI@Home starts up" in this context?
How do you know it "starts up"?

Explain what you mean in more words (as SETI@Home app can't have any meaningful relation with this file)
