    HELP ! 'Update' Window at Start UP.

    Every time I start my Windows 2000, there's a window called "Update" with a sub-window called "Status", opens. I tried to find the program, but nothing. Is it some kind of MIRC or ??? It is soooo annoying. Please help !

    I wonder if perhaps it's an errant program that is set to launch at boot time. Since Windows 2000 doesn't have a native tool for startup programs, you could try Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel to see what's loading and eliminate possibilities. I'd remove them one at a time unti you find the one that is causing the pop-up.

    You can also do what I did and Add { MSCONFIG.EXE } to WIN2000 which will then give you that control. You can get it here MSCONFIG.EXE for Win2000 and it works exactly like WinXP MSCONFIG. It's the same program.

    Another alternative choice would be the registry utility found at http://www.jv16.org/ . Use the 'Starting Programs' page in the registry tool. As it is said "Different strokes for different folks".
