Whenever I log onto my user at first, I get 2 little pop up boxes that both say "Gearbox is not installed or setup properly. Reinstall" I've fixed this a long time ago but then I reformatted and it started to happen again. Does anyone know how to fix it. I think it has to do with explorer.exe because sometimes if i get an error it'll close the startmenu/taskbar. Any help is appreciated.

It sounds like Gearbox is trying to run on Startup. Go to Start>Run, type in msconfig and look under the Startup tab to see if its there and has a checkmark. If so uncheck it.

If not you may have to edit the registry. Do you have Spybot? You can manage your startups with that.
