    pixie34,

    Welcome to the board! The only thing that I could find is this. You may want to take a look and see if you can find anything in there that may help. Post back if it doesn't help.

    Click Start - Run, type in MSCONFIG, then click OK - Startup(tab). Find the listing for that program, uncheck it, click Apply - OK, then reboot.

    DO not msconfig it out, that is a temporary and short term solution to a simple problem, that doesn't actually solve it

    it's because the file has been deleted rather than properly uninstalled and the registry entries remain

    go to http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/hijackthis.zip , and download 'Hijack This!'.
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

    It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.
