Harmless :tazz:

But we'll get rid of them:

Go to Start->Run and type in regedit and hit OK. Go to File->Export and save the registry somewhere as a backup. Close the Registry Editor now. Go to Start->Run and type in notepad and hit OK. Then copy and paste the following into Notepad:

REGEDIT4
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Search Assistant\ACMru\5603]
"000"=-
"001"=-
"002"=-
"003"=-


Save the file as "delete.reg". Make sure to save it with the quotes. Double click on it and choose Yes to merge it. You may delete the file afterwards.

Restart. Any problems now?

Is at shut down a window pops up saying MSEDISPL.EXE DDL Initialization Failed - failed to initialize due to windows station shutting down.

Search for MSEDISPL in Windows and in the registry to see if you still find any traces of it. When doing the Windows search, I want you go to search All files and folders and type in MSEDISPL on the second box (A word or phrase in the file). Search and see what comes up.

Delete it and see if you still get that popup now. If you do, do a search for autoexec.bat and win.ini to see where they are. Open them up (right click -> Edit) and post the whole file here (for both of them). I think there might be some trails left behind in one of those files.
