    During initial Windows 7 start-up or re-log on a file tries to load titled "David" and the best I could come up with it is some type of "MIME" type file. I tired to use MSCONFIG to locate the errant file with no luck. Any suggestions:confused:?

    Hp yo msconfig and uncheck everything except your anti-virus scanner.

    This may sound like a virusvis Have you done a complete virus scan lately.

    The MIME type is what bothers me,

    :)Thanks everybody for your inputs. They were great. The "Terminator" and I found the errant file somehow got put in a "User" directory. We simply deleted it and we are now home free again.:)

    True, but msconfig doesn't show everything . That bootracer program that reports boot time is hidden.
