:thumbsup: Have started to get a small popup window (approx 3" x 3") in center of screen every half hour that has heading Reminder S, September 29, 2007 Saturday 4:30:00 PM, with starndard internet error message:

This program cannot display the webpage
Most likely causes:
- You are not connected to the internet.
- The website is ..... etc.

O More information

Window has no close, full screen or send to task bar buttons. The reference tab on the task bar has no right or left click functions. The only way to close the window is to use End Task in the Windows Task Manager.

When I close it, another popup appears at the next half hour interval (new time).

Have looked thru all the IE 7.0 options, tabs, etc. and see nothing to indicate any type of time reminder or scheduled popup.

What is this?

Hello SCP,

The following all seem to point to HP and some "Easy Internet Sign-Up" feature as the culprit:

:thumbsup:

Thanks much.

You saved me a lot of time & headaches usually associated with hunting down aq problem with MS software/programs.

Don't know why this started yesterday. As far as I know, i didn't set, change or add any scheduled tasks.

Again, thank you for your help.
