    When I start my computer and also when I restart it I get the following message 2 times; it opens Notepad 2 times, each time with the same message.

    Go to START, RUN, and type:msconfig When it opens, click the Startup tab.

    Uncheck any "desktop" entries that are listed as "Common Startup" and are located in any of these 3 directories:
    1) drive:\Documents and Settings\AllUsers\StartMenu\Programs\Startup
    2) drive:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs
    3) drive:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu

    Click Apply. Restart your computer.
