Cannot find "Copy to Def.js"

Each time I start windows and log into my account, I get the prompt "cannot find Copy To Def.js", and windows is not able to tell me what program it is or what it needs to run it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The only thing I can find is that its java related.

it looks like some java application is trying to run at startup.

You don't need any java trying to load at startup so goto the System Configuration Utility, (Start > Run, type in msconfig and click OK), and in the new window click the Startup tab.

Find anything that looks like it is Java, and remove the tick. Click Apply, accept the information message that appears. When you restart you will get another information window explaining you are in Selective Startup Mode. You can suppress that window from within the window itself.
