I've had my Windows 7 laptop for about 5 months, about a month ago upon booting the system the dialog box to choose which program to use to open a file appears (twice). The file listed (in both dialog boxes), I can't find on the system. How to I stop the "Open With" dialog boxes from appearing?

And the file is?

Download & Run Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml). The message you are getting is likely related to something trying to start with the OS. If you see it in Startup Control Panel, uncheck it.

Interesting, the file is TD which happens to be my first two initials. I downloaded the program. If I unckeck everything in the HKCU/run then the issue goes away if any one item is checked then the "Open With" happens. However, it is down to only two instances of the dialog box.

Are you comfortable in the registry? If so, navigate to HKCU - Software - Microsoft - Windows - Current Version - Run
Are there any entries that don't look like they belong (in the right pane)? Any incomplete entries? Any you don't recognize?
