I have got this pop-up window displayed since I first bought my new computer, on a separate nonadministrative account.

However, I have completely re-formatted my HD, and even re-installed Windows. And I still get this pop-up.

I do not get it on a User Account that has Administrative powers, but only on a Limited User.

This is what the pop-up looks like.

Thanks

Thats a LUA bug.
Is windows packaged with extra software and/or drivers?
Check your startup list for programs that might cause this problem.
Might be wrong but do you have Digital Media Reader?

I have two programs that may be the cause:

1. It is the Media Reader (As you asked)
2. I also got with my new computer WinFast DTV, which allows me to watch Digital Television.

NOTE: When installing WinFast DTV, I was informed that it was not a Microsoft checked software.

Does this help?

Probably Digital Media Reader, pre-installed to work with your card reader. I guess all you have to do is stop it running at startup.
OK, apparently the offending file is readericon45G.exe

It appears to be related to a flash card reader made by Alcor Micro (http://www.alcormicro.com/).

I'd suggest using msconfig to disable it. Note using msconfig is not without risk, so do so carefully.

With the disclaimer out of the way...
1. Click the start button, click run and type msconfig and hit enter
2. Go to the startup tab and find "readericon45G" and uncheck the checkbox
3. Do not make any other changes!
4. Click OK and restart if prompted.

That should stop it running.

I'm speculating that all that it does is display an appropriate icon when you insert a memory card and not having it running shouldn't have any negative effects on your system. If it does you can just repeat the steps above and recheck the checkbox.

Hope that helps! :thumbsup:

-Edit: It can be found Here in the startup database.

If I do this, I guess I will not be able to use the Card Reader anymore?

OK, I have attempted the following steps, but I don't have that file? Anywhere on my computer.

NOTE: I have uninstalled the software for my Digital Media Reader, and I don't seem to get that pop-up anymore.

However the brand name is: "Apacer", and I have found what it looks like, and it's specifications, for further information.
