I continued to have a repeat of seeing that box every time I started up. I am taking a class online and had to add several disks. Afterwards, I decided that I needed to add an anti-virus--no I hadn't had a need for it. Went out and got Norton's anti-virus 2003 and it wouldn't let me finish until I re-loaded "The Photo Gallary" disk from my hp psc 1410v all-in-one. I did that, then ran the scan on my computer. Luckily, I had no viruses, even though I had just started on Internet two weeks ago. I turned my computer off, then back on and the bleeping box was gone. Thanks for taking the time to look at my problem and when I figure your site out better, I'll be back. Thanks, again. :thumbsup:
