    How long has this been happening? Have you done any recent downloads? First go to start>settings>control panel>internet options>connection tab>make sure always dial my default conection is checked. Then, go to start>run>type msinfo32>click software environment>click start>edit>select all>edit>copy>ppppppaste you you have here.

    First, go to ms messenger and run through the options. There should be a place to uncheck it starting at start up. Then run through your antivirus and find where it is scheduled to update. For now, uncheck any automatic updates. Then go to start>run>type msconfig>start tab>uncheck MSMSGS. Reboot. If it keeps coming back, use the msconfig link next to my name to see what other programs you can uncheck at start up. Uncheck all you can and see if that does it. If not, post the rest back here and we will see what else to uncheck. Usually, msmsgs and antivirus are the worst about this.

    Hi,

    Why not uncheck everything unneeded. You notably have a number of reminder proggies running that are notorious for doing this kind of thing.

    Go to Start/run, type msconfig, go to the startup tab, and uncheck EVERYTHING, except for the following:

    NSCHED32.EXE, Scanregistry, bpcpost.exe, VidServr and Tvwakeup (all three Web TV, leave only if you use it, otherwise uncheck), System tray, LoadPowerProfile (2X), Norton Auto Protect, Scheduling Agent, AccessRampLan, and AccessRamp Monitor (uncheck if you don't really need those as either).

    Uncheck everything else, click OK, close Msconfig, and reboot.

    Good luck,

    Just to follow up. If unchecking all of that stuff in msconfig cleared it up, you can always recheck one at a time to find out who the culprit was. This way, you can add back to start up those things you would like running when you start.

    BTW- Your welcome. Tell your friends, and, welcome to TSG. :)
