When restarting my computer I get a folder called HP that pops up on my computer screen each time. I have looked in programs/start up and the folder says empty although I am still getting this folder. Please help.

Thank You,

Welcome to BC! :thumbsup:

Start > Run

type "msconfig" (without the quotes)

Click on the Startup tab. Here you will find a list of programs that start when you boot your computer. Uncheck any you don't want to start when you boot up. (You still will be able to start programs through their shortcuts or by going to Start > All Programs. Unchecked programs just won't start automatically at bootup and won't be running in the background.)

You can Google entries or use the Bleeping Computer Startup Database HERE to research the various startup entries, as sometimes they can be a bit cryptic.
