Please download and run hijackthis Do a scan and then save a log. Take the log and ATTACH IT (do not post) to your next post. In order to attach it, you will either need to change the .log extension to .txt, or you will have to put the log into a compressed (zipped) folder.
We do not like to post hijackthis logs in sections other than the malware forum as we do not want to encourage people to post malware issues in this forum.
I am not looking for malware. I am looking for what programs or combinations of programs might cause this behavior. If I notice any malware, I will redirect you to the malware forum.
If you post a hijackthis log in this forum, several trusted techs will come to your house and eat all of your Ritz crackers, Cheeze Doodals and any sweet pickles you have in your fridge. We will also put our feet up on all of your coffee tables. This is no joke. We'll do it. It's not pretty.

Open MSCONFIG by going to Start --> Run
type msconfig and press enter. Go to the Startup tab. Find the HP Boot Optimizer. (it may look like HPBootOp or something similar) Now uncheck the box next to it. Click on Apply and then OK.
Restart your computer and see if it still pops up.

Just put a check in the box next to Don't show this message or launch the System Configuration Utility when Windows start and then click on OK. It will go away.

If you are talking about the System Config Window, go back into MSCONFIG and on the 1st tab, click on Normal Startup. Reboot. You will probably see the window again. Put a check next to that box and reboot again. See if it happens again.
If you are talking about the HP Boot Optimizer, let me know. I'll prepare instructions for its removal.

So we'll try to salvage the Boot Optimizer before we try removing it completely.
This program is non-essential process to the running of the program, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems.
Follow the advice at the following website:
Try the uninstalling instructions first. And if unsuccessful, try the reinstalling instructions.
