I have a brand new Dell E6500 Latitude laptop.  Every time i reboot or restart the Control Panel opens up first thing, like it's in the startup folder.  It is not there.  Any ideas of where else I can look to turn this off?

Use the binocuklars (search feature), and search for either "Control.exe", or "*.cpl"

THe accepted solution dd not work for me.  It was a Dell Configuration Management issue and when I enable that application it goes away.  Not good for me as it kick the Windows wireless configuration out by default which is what we need to work with our VPN client.  I am going to uninstall the entire DCM control panel to see if that does the trick.
