I keep getting a repair meesage from my Norton WinDoctor that states.."The key,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run," refers to a registry value "EnsoniqMixer" that points to "starter.exe", an invalid start up command. I can have WinDoctor fix it automatically, but it will rewrite itself and crash in about 10 minutes.....any ideas?

Sounds like the software for your soundcard is causing a few problems. You could try removing it and re-adding it, or at least re-installing the drivers.

If you have no luck with this you could try emailing Ensoniq or looking at a support site like this one:

If all else fails you could try putting an dud vb EXE file called starter.exe in location it's looking for!!!!

Ok?,

  Please make your try this and try that marked as a comment...it's not an answer.

Jackh,
Tweakui has a "Clear Run History at Logon".
I suggest you give that a go.
