Type in 'msconfig' in Start -> Run, then go to the 'Startup' tab. See if there is any website or IElink is added there and remove it by removing the tick.


What exactly makes you think IE is starting up at boot? I mean what exactly is happening? Does a web page open?

Remember that Windows Explorer and Internet Explorer are not the same thing even though they essentially are. They use a lot of the same code. We need to know exactly what is happening to give you a good answer.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
