This is annoying -- it doesn't seem to do any harm other than slow down the start up, but I would like to get rid of it.
I think I have the latest updates of Windows, IE 6, etc. and I have looked as closely as I know how at the processes that run when Windows starts up, but I can't find anything that would cause this.
I have run Hijack This and examined the report; I even pasted it into the Hijack This Analyzer, and there doesn't seem to be anything out of the ordinary.
Any help would be appreciated.
removing 2 programs from the startups in msconfig did the trick (they were: instalshield update manager & adobe acrobate speed launcher)
