    This is my first time at trying this, so I hope it works...

    I have a situation that happens when I boot up...it always finishes with a couple of dialog boxes on my desk top.

    One is a box for " media player", and the other is asking me if I want to install the "drive converter(Fat32) wizard" They don't seem to be causing a problem (all I have to do is close the windows) but it is becoming a pain...

    I am not sure if it might corrupted files or what, it seem to have started when I upgraded from IE 5.5 to IE 6.x :confused:

    Thanks in advance for any advice anyone might have...

    Jim,

    The media box says "Media Player" on the title bar and has control buttons (stop, play, pause etc) and the other box say "Drive converter(Fat 32)" on the title bar. In the box it tells me it is a compression wizard and asks me if I want to install it.

    My OS is Win 98se with IE6 browser...

    Thanx for your interest. Sorry I forgot to put down what I was running...has been corrected.

    Bob :eek:

    Start button, run, then type msconfig and hit ok...go to the startup tab, look for those two items and uncheck them and restart the computer.
