    When ever I turn on or restart XP-32, it launches IE7 and an ad for Trend Micro takes over. This wastes 3 or 4 minutes before I can use the computer for real work. I went to startup in msconfig but did not see a clue for what causes this. What do I uncheck, and how do I convince the computer that I have the legal authority to do the unchecking? I am its owner and have access to a dumpster.
