Check some of the usual...

In reply to: Possible new forum issue or...

Since it's at boot I'd say it's definitely something on your end. I'd check what's listed to launch at boot...check Scheduled Tasks in the Control Panel, the Startup folder in the start menu, and msconfig (Start->run->msconfig). Somewhere along the way there is a reference to the forum mainpage website as a file to be opened on boot. Also clean out your temp files. There's a reference there somewhere, we just have to figure out where it's hiding. Happy

Hope this helps,
John

RE:Scheduled Tasks in the Control Panel

All that in there is a icon that says add Scheduled Task

RE:start folder:

microsoft office and adobe reader speed launch

RE:misconfig

Under start item-there is a box that is checked(with no description)

Under command-No description

Under location-HKCU\software\microsoft\windows\current version...

microsoft office and adobe reader speed launch are there

I am just now experiencing the funky cursor that was mentioned in the other posts.It is difficult to type.

Thanx,
Tom

Try that one mystery entry...

In reply to: (NT) Hi John,do you know the solution

I'd disable that one mystery entry in Msconfig, or delete it altogether using HiJackThis. (Make sure it's enabled in Msconfig so it'll show up in HJT, then use the Repair option.) If that's not it I'm not sure what it would be. If you had ME or XP I'd suggest System Restore, but with 2000 you're a little more limited. What exactly does the MS Office entry launch (word.exe, excel.exe, etc)...it's possible it's trying to auto-recover a deleted file?

Good luck.

I disabled it in MSCONFIG.I noticed that once disabled there seems to be a point of no return.Is that the norm?

The microsoft office and adobe reader speed launch in misconfig are listed under location as common startup,not sure exactly what that means

I tried to launch microsoft office and adobe from the start up folder and nothing happens.
