I am running windows 98.  I download
a surf bar a month ago. The problem
is whenever I reboot machine, the
surf bar will automatic start and
trying to connect.  I looked into
Programs/Startup folder , it is empty.
It's not in autoexec.bat or win.ini.

How can I find it and stop it?

Thanks.

The best method would be to uninstall it if you do not want it. Is it AllAdavatage?

Otherwis-e, Click Start - Run - type MSCONFIG - Click the Startup Tab, and unchech the item - - if it is not there, let us know and we can walk you throiugh looking for it in the registry.
