Pop-Up Window At Start-Up

Hello,

I have a window that pops up everytime I restart. This window is just a regular window with some folders in it. I checked 'Start Up' folder to see if it was there, but it is not and also none of the applications is causing it to open.

Do you know how to turn it off? or where do I go in the System Registry to turn off such things?


Also, do you know any program that makes your ADSL go faster?

I appreciate your help,
Thank you,
-Hocam

use Msconfig and look at what loads in the start up tab.

click Start, run and type:
msconfig
press ok

You should see everything that loads at statup, by unchecking you remove from the startup.

Hope this helps.

Hi Hocam,
Except for the startup, it might be in autoexec.bat, win.ini and system.ini...
just another reference for you
