    Unwanted 'Programs' (Windows XP)

    Every time I boot up my computer, a screen entitled "Program" is running. I cannot find any where how to get rid of it and put it back in the background where it belongs. Help!?!

    Can you give us a screen shot or tell us the name of this "Program" that is running?

    Here it is! Thank you. I now have to batten down the hatches for Hurricane Rita. Hopefully the house, the computer, the cats and dog, and we will survive unscathed.

    From this screenshot, it appears that you have BackWeb installed on your computer and the window you see is an Explorer view of that folder. Something is telling the system to display this window on startup. Download and install Autoruns . This utility will allow you to see everything that is being loaded on startup. Have a look at the entries and see if you can find one that is loading this particular explorer window. Then, simply uncheck it and reboot.
