[Sorry it has taken so long to reply, but I havnt had time to mess about with this. Yes .... it seems that you are right, the popup has gone!!!

I have "Spy Sweeper", and I disabled the "load at startup", then went into the reg and deleted the file.

Just before, and I dont know if it was too risky - I corrupted the binary codes for the file. When I re-started the popup file came up, but was full of funny characters. Still I believe that it is your suggestion that did the final trick. Now I am not game to replace the Spy Sweeper at startup, in case it comes back again, so I will just have to remember to sweep regularly once my programs are loaded at startup.

Well done - you seem to have come up with the answer, or at least a fix.

Thank you - What country are you from? I am in Australia

Regards Michael

Hey, I just wanted to add to this - I was cleaning up a PC for someone this week who had uninstalled Norton and kept getting this identical error. I ran the Symantec tools, I personally cleaned over 100 entries from the registry, and searched every inch of that PC and still had the problem. When I looked at the user's Spysweeper, there were indeed 2 startup entries that Spysweeper was shielding. I couldn't delete them for anything, and if I unchecked them, they came right back on the second reboot. Upon checking with Webroot, the makers of Spysweeper, I found that this was a known issue - Spysweeper protecting entries that no longer existed - but it had only happened a few times in the real world, and they are not yet able to reproduce it, and thus fix it. Our solution was to completely uninstall Spysweeper and re-install it - we'll see how that goes.
