Look in your startup folder: start, programs, startup.

Anything there?

Worth tryin a reg cleaner, such as regseek - google will find it.

Hi, you have not said which OS you are using.
If XP, I would suggest running DiskCleanup in System Tools - and - try a System Restore.

I suspect the E: is your CD drive. At some stage you were installing a program from that drive and the installation probably failed. The PC is trying to complete the installation on start up because there is an entry in the registry (an essential part of the running instructions of the PC) which says you reached that point and no further.

Download regclean here: click here

It is a Microsoft utility that will scan the registry and remove redundant entries. It saves them so that if you have any problems you can easily restore them again.

Rn it and reboot to see if your problem has been solved.
