    After running AVG Spyware, Smitfraud and CCleaner the first time I started getting the following message during start up.
    "Problem with Shortcut - The drive or network connection that the shortcut "Instant Update Reminder. Ink" refers to is unavailable. Make sure the disk is properly inserted or the network resource is available and then try again."

    I don't think this is causing a problem, I just don't like having it pop up and closing it every time I start. How can I get it off.

    Howdy,

    Go to Start>>Run type msconfig click OK

    Click on the Startup tab look for

    C:\Program Files\U.S. Robotics\ControlCenter\Reminder.exe

    and Disable it

    Thanks, I tried this and get:
    Cannot find the file 'msconfig' (or one of it's components) Make sure the path and filename are correct and that all required libraries are available.
