My husband installed a WD backup hard drive. Since then, every time the computer starts up an installation window for panostandalone pops up states insert disc into drive to install. We have to wait until attempts complete, then use the end task to disable or continues attempts to install.

I have looked into add/remove programs: can't find panpstandalone device to delete. Start up shows several programs that are unreconizable. Have run misconfig, states no file that name. I am out of ideas. Anyone have this problem or know how to GET RID OF THIS? Husband states no disc included with WD back up system

Thanks

Hey there, js15043, welcome to BC!

(garmanma, that link is broken! here's the fixed one: http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/Panostandalone-t99207.html.)

You can try removing the program in question from the startup list.

Go to Start->Run... and type in the following:
msconfig
then press Enter.

This will open the System Configuration Utility as shown in Figure 1.

1. Click on the Startup Tab
2. Find The Reference to the program and remove the check mark next to it
3. Press Apply
4. Press Close
5. Press Restart (Fig 2)

be careful when changing the startup items. I'm not sure what the panostandalone entry will look like. Feel free to post a list of what's listed and we can help you sort through it.

It just occured to me that you may want this program to start, its just broken. If that's the case, follow the link above for more info.
