Please give us a description of your system, what op system, what exactly is it that you got rid of, what you used to do it or did you just delete files yourself, and exactly what is happening including the exact error messages if any.

Thank you for your reply. I am using Windows XP Home and I removed programs in the add/remove programs section of the control panel. I removed one photo editing program that may be related... it came with my Konica-Minolta digital camera. Once I am logged on I receive the application error message hpqthb08.exe. The message then says that the application failed to initialize properly (Ox0000135). I do have an HP printer which was installed before I installed the photo editing software. I have several, did not need another and was trying to free up space due to slow start ups. Only had the computer since Oct. and still should have lots of space. Thanks for your kind attention!

I have found an article on your question. To give credit I will link it.

I believe this is the HP image zone fast start program. You should be able
to disable this program without affecting the HP Image Zone application. Just
run msconfig and uncheck the program listed under the startup tab.

I am glad you found such a quick answer. I just wanted to add my 2 cents even though I am late to this party. :thumbsup:

I think the issue was simply that you uninstalled the program, but there were still remnants left behind. This is pretty common actually. One thing that was left behind was the entry that could be found in run > 'msconfig' > startup. This is a list of programs, that when checked, will start up (or at least try to start up) everytime you boot the computer. So, your computer was being told to start the program, and yet the guts of the program were missing, so it give you an error message ("failed to initialize" means it did not start up properly). By simply unchecking the appropriate box in run > 'msconfig' > startup the computer will no longer try to start the program.

Hope that explanation is clear!

One other thing:

It is good practice when deleting programs not to do more than one at a time.
Then reboot.

It makes it a lot easier to troubleshoot the causes that way.

Thanks for that... I will remember next time. I do have one more question. There seem to be quite a few boxes checked in that msconfig startup list. Can I eliminate some? Which are absolutely necessary? Perhaps if I list them.... so many, Alaunch SynTPLpr SynTPLnh SOUNDMAN AGRSMMSG Rundll32 keyhook IMJPMIG ImScInst TINTSETP (this is listed twice) PCMService QtZgAcer Check HPWuSchd2 REGSHAVE apdproxy jusched gcasServ QOELoader CAVTray CAVRID Ca MsnMsgr (hey I know this one!) msmsgs ypager (I never page anybody) Utility tray HP Digital Imaging... Exif Launcher Adobe Reader Spe... (don't imagine I need this on start up either) Well, that's my list.... I am aware that it will be an onerous task to respond to this.... I just need to keep what is necessary for effective, smooth start up. Thanks in advance to whichever knight comes to my rescue!
