I think I've solved the problem.
Two years ago I used a BenQ plug-in wireless adaptor with my laptop, and installed the associated software and driver. I've since replaced the adaptor with one made by D-Link.
I uninstalled the BenQ software before installing the D-Link device, but not all its files seem to have been removed.
In the C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ folder I've found the following files, all attributed to BenQ:
AWLCFG.cpl - Control Panel Applet
AWLIOC.dll - AWL Driver Interface Library
AWLRES.dll - AWL Resources
AWLSTA.exe - AWL Status Tray Applet
I don't have any other BenQ devices, so I'm assuming all these files can safely be removed, together with the reference in the Startup.
Many thanks for your help.
