    I've found a few messages on this subject, but no answers. I have a Soundblaster AudioPCI Sound card. When I run msconfig there is a startup command that says:

    EnsoniqMixer Starter.exe

    I have unchecked this several times and even deleted it from the registry but everytime I reboot it's right back in the startup commands. There is no starter.exe anywhere that I can find. This probably is harmless, but is there really a way to get rid of it besides finding another sound card? I don't know if this is a Windows 98 bugaboo or something to do with the Soundblaster card itself. If anyone truly knows the answer I would appreciate it. Again, just unchecking it does nothing because it always comes back.

    The entry Ensoniq Mixer Starter.exe found in MSCONFIG puts the mixer in the system tray. According to Ensoniq, " Our mixer is a critical part of the sound card as it fixes sound problems and replaces the MS mixer which can no longer be used."

    Good luck.
