I just started MW GPU running on two rigs- Q6600, XP Home- and am getting a fair number of these errors on both rigs...

... normal?, anything to worry about or do to correct?
Thanks
Edit: WCG is running on CPU at the same time.

Do you have that file in the correct place? Don't know otherwise.
Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected the expected?
If it makes sense, DON'T do it.

I have a few of these as well on my GTX295 starting from the initial download. My suspicion is either a race condition or failure to correctly download everything. At least these crashed very quickly.

I am continuing to get the errors, but very few of them and they do crash out almost immediately.
