Annoying "Interface List" popping up during startup

I'm on an Asus 1005HA with Windows7 Starter. This problem was not happening when the netbook was new, but now every time it starts, a file tries to open -- and a dialog box appears asking which program to open it with. The checkbox for "always open this type of file with this program" is grayed out, uncheckable.

I chose Notepad to open it to see what it was, but usually I just X it closed. When I look at in Notepad it shows an "Interface List" (see below for the complete, exact text it shows)

The file name seems to choose for itself the last name of the primary user of the netbook (my wife in this case).

I wish I could somehow stop this from appearing. Guessing it's probably easy if you only know where to go to find the right check box.

Thanks for any help.

The text of that message, as it appears in Notepad:

Interface List
13...00 22 43 d7 23 5c ......Bluetooth Device (Personal Area Network)
12...e0 cb 4e 56 7d d9 ......Atheros AR8132 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20)
11...00 25 d3 d2 f7 9c ......Atheros AR2427 Wireless Network Adapter

Considering you simply asked for it to not pop up, we should be able to make that happen.
First, Check your startup folder.
(I call the windows orb start, I dunno if its just me, or if its everyone)
Start>All Programs> Startup
When you are in the All Programs section, just scroll down and look for Startup. Open that folder and see whats in it (Tell us in your next reply, what is in the startup folder)

If nothing is in the startup folder, then we go to msconfig
With Win7, you can just type msconfig into the start menus search bar, then hit enter.

Startup tab, of course, and in your next reply, tell us what is in the msconfig startup tab.

We can tell you what and what not to remove from startup ;)

Well...what file extension is it?

It would be nice to know the complete filename...much easier to get a fix on.
