    Could try all the startup keys in reg. hklm & hklu->Software\microsoft\windows\current version\run.

    Don't forget HU ->HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1078081533-1993962763-1060284298-1003\software\microsoft\windows\current version\run. That key is often overlooked and is where you find the stubborn programs. You know the ones you remove from everywhere else but they still manage to startup.

    Im sure you looked in the startup folder already. Just sounds to me that something is set to start up at boot. And when does this newbie lable go away?

    Good luck

    Are you using Norton by chance ? Or did you have Norton and the trial period is over ?
