    IE 6.0 starts at bootup

    Will do. System is running better now. Not sure what cleared the problem but it's gone so I'm not going to worry about it. Thanks much.

    IE 6.0 starts at bootup

    I use the Control Panel whenever I uninstall, as longas it can be done. Sometimes the program will have an uninstall element and I may use that. What should I do to completely uninstall Norton? Again, thank you very much for all your help.

    IE 6.0 starts at bootup

    It's auto loading at startup. There's no command in the startup folder, no entries in the registry Run or RunOnce strings that I can recognize as being related to the problem. There are other entries in the registry but I don't know what they're for so I leave them alone.

    It still pops up. Incredibly frustrating. Sure is persistent - is there anything that will clear it?

    IE 6.0 starts at bootup

    I don't go to these sites! I'm not sure why they're showing up, unless they're from pop-ups that I get from time to time.
