    Someone gave my son a computer and everytime he starts it up, Notepad comes up. I know there is a simple way to correct this, but I have forgotten how.

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    if you're running Win98

    try to see if you have that program in Start/Program/StartUp folder. if it's there...just delete it.

    if not...try Start/Run/ type "MSCONFIG"

    then click on StartUp tab and uncheck the one that is most like the notepad program.

    ok it and it'll prompt you to restart
