I had to reformat my drive and reinstall all the applications. I now get a small dialog box with the word 'OK' and a small letter 'i' that appears at boot up at just about the same time as my password dialog box appears. I have been unable to identify the cause of this box so I cannot eliminate it. I suspect it is left over from one of one of the programs that I re-installed. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions as to how I find out what is loading at this time. MSconfig does not help, the run keys of the registry don't help (at least I don't think they do)and when I hit Ctrl/Alt/Del the box is totally empty because the GUI is just starting to load. I would love help from anyone.
