When I tackle these I look around the many startup entries with AUTORUNS.
This is a power tool so only remove the item you know it is. And yes, it's a lot to look through but it's the tool I use.
I tried to get a file to start when i wake the laptop, however this didn't work and I deleted it. However every time I wake the laptop I am faced with a box "How do you want to open this file?". To get rid of it I just click. Is there a way to stop this happening? If i try to open the file in say Word, it comes back with "This file could not be found", if I follow the file path, there is nothing there. Can anyone help.
