Unwanted Install at Start up

When I boot my system, an Installation of MicroSoft Web Mapper starts. I have no idea why. It's not in my Start Up folder. I don't even know how it got there or what the installation file name is. If I let the installation program run and try and install it (so it can be deleted) I get an invalid password.

Any help would be appreciated.

You want to look in:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce]
and
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]

Also search your registry for any reference to Web mapper and delete.

Run REGEDIT and search for 'run' or 'runonce'. Also you can
found it in win.ini file lines with load= or run=
