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.

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

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.
