Anyone have any ideas?
Go here and download AutoRuns, use this little app by running it and going to the Logon section to disable programmes from running.
Now you will have to do a bit of trial and error here to find out which startup app is causing the problem.
So do it one at a time till you find the culprit, if the one you stop from is not the one that causes the problem re-enable it, then try another and so on.
Using AutoRuns is prefered to using MSConfig... AutoRuns for Windows
