Is there a ways to activate a program one step at a time in order to determine where it is calling for an annoying orphan program?

How can I determine where the program is trying to load PCForrest StartMan?

The registry and the file search has no PCForrest or Startman remaining.

Have you tried running chkdsk /f /r?

This is an orphaned file, chkdsk usually finds these and places them in a file. This file may be titled found.000.chk. These chkdsk logs can be found in Event Viewer. Go to Start> Run and type in eventvwr.msc and click OK. When it opens click on Application, then click on Source. Scroll down and look for Wininit, The list is in alphabetical order. You can double click on this to view the results.

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

I think you meant "Process Monitor" from the same guy: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645

Start Process Monitor and set the filter to only show events from the application in question. It will show each and every attempt to read/write/locate files, registry values, network traffic, etc. and whether they failed/succeeded, the path of the file/reg value, etc.

Thanks, I installed and found:

What does this have to do with Photo Pos PPro?

I don't know. Have you contacted the maker of Photo Pos Pro?
