HI

hope someone can help me out with this. Whenever my comp boots up I get a windows installer that comes up and tries to configure "File Finder Full" which was a program i used to recover some lost files. However I have uninstalled the program, removed the files asssociated with the program, blocked the program and yet everytime i start up my computer this same windows installer/configuration of FFF keep popping up! Anyone know why un installing etc has not solved this problem??

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit, select all, right click any file, click delete, confirm and reboot. Can you use search, including hidden and system files to look for the programme

Hi Keith

I did what you reccomended and im still having the same thing happen at startup. I have used Advnaced System Optimizer to check the programs on startup and I can't find anything to do with "File Finder Full" The installer still pops up and Windows tries to configure it. Im thinking an entire re-install of the OS might be in order.....

Do you know the name of the manufacturer, you can look for that also

Click start then run, type msconfig then press enter, click start up, look for and remove any ticks for the programme, click apply and reboot, tick do not start the configuration utility when windows loads
