A little more info please.

Go to Start/Run and type in msconfig(win98) and let us know what programs are listed as starting up on the tab called Startup.

PC specs, OS & installed programs would also be nice

maybe of some virus infection here. Download f-prot antivrus from www.complex.is and check it out.

The second thing to check is to open the autoexec.bat file from the root of the hdd (usually c:) You ca nedit the file using notepad. Seee if there is any line that indicate that this line is laoded, place a rem in front of the line

Or you can run msconfig and see if from there as well

Here is a free utility that list all programs that run at startup. Use is to systematically identify which application may be doing this by taking a program out of the startup and reboot windows until you find the clulprit.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Might be something that precedes windows - check config.sys and autoexec.bat (or post them here is you like).

If you weren't aroudn in the days of DOS, these files are in the c:\ directory, and run programs and stuff much like the StartUp directory in Windows, only before Windows loads.

And in the win.ini file under load= or run=, and the Start>Programs>Startup folder also.
