    When I booting the XP every time, a windows is popup (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft\ [Merge Modules]);(not the GUI by MSconfig)
    (please see the attach doc);

    How can I disable the popup windows every times rebooting?

    I am us Windows XP SP2+Office 2003

    If you check that box and then click the button, I bet it won't come back. Looks like the MSCONFIG dialog that appears after a reboot saying you made changes to me.

    I think he means the explorer window in the background.

    I would suggest looking through msconfig under the startup tab for anything that has the command C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft.

    Sometimes a dead link in the startup tab will cause an explorer window to appear.

    So much for kcny reading carefully :) :p

    As Michael mentioned, I would search through the startups for something that references that folder. I believe that folder (Merge Modules) is usually used by Visual Studio so it may be something that Visual Studio is trying to find as well.

    I have "notreadingcarefullydisease" for the past week.

    I think we should just delete my posts since the beginning of April - will make life a lot less confusing :p

    I attached all the list under msconfig, I can't determine which entry I should un-check.

    Thank .

    Either one, If the problem still exists just uncheck the other. Either, of those modules should be able to do what you need.
