Upon startup I get 3 separate Windows pop-ups that say:
Windows cannot open this file: ymetray.lnk.disabled. QuickBooks Update Agent.lnk.disabled. Adobe Reader Speed Launch.lnk.diabled. Then then it says...
To open this file Windows needs to know what program created it. Windows can go online and look it up automatically or you can manually select if from a list of programs on your computer.
I click "Use the web service to find the appropriate program" and it tells me "Windows does not recognize this file type."
QuickBooks is not in my Add/Remove Programs List, but does show up on the StartUp menu. I have never used this program and believe it came with the computer.
I just installed the latest version of Adobe and the pop up still pops up.
I have no idea what ymetray is???
Any help is greatly appreciated!!

If you do not use them disable them using a startup manager
