For the past week I have had an issue with my computer. Each time I logon the icons appear in the taskbar as normal and then suddenly a window will pop up saying Run As... It's the same kind of window that appears whenever you would right click on a program and select the 'Run As' option.
It only happens when those who are 'computer administrators' logon and I have gone into the start up menu to see which programs are attempting to start up during logon but I've found nothing.

Here are a few recent details about my computer:
I'm currently using Windows XP/service pack 3, my internet explorer is up to date, the computer itself is 5 years old and I have recently installed several items of software that I am now in the process of removing. These include Freesmith media player, Pazera audio extractor and an autoruns program, all of which were downloaded through CNET.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

Just to add that since I've removed these programs everything has since gone back to normal and the screen hasn't appeared. My guess is that something I'd downloaded was conflicting with software already on my computer as several virus scans both in normal and safe modes came up with nothing. Sorry to have been a bother and thank you for your time. :thumbup2:
