When Windows 2000 SP4 starts up, wordpad opens and displays the content of the file c:\winnt\system 32\1E. That may be a temp file.Can anyone tell me what might cause this and how to stop it.

Check the Event Viewer for errors appearing at those times, in the far left column these will have a red dot with a white X in the middle. If you right click on the number in the Event column and choose properties it will display a description of the error, please post those here.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Thanks for your help. I opened Autoruns and unchecked the box near c:\winnt\system32\1E.tmp, after running several register cleaners and spyware removers. The box remained unchecked(it had reset itself previously).Startup working OK now.
