Hi Brongar. This question would be better posted in the Helproom. However if you click Start - Run. Type in the word msconfig, and click OK, you'll get a box with several tabs. Click on the Startup tab and look at the list of entries there. One of the entries may refer to a part of Microsoft Works Suite. Untick the box alongside the entry and OK out of the System Configuration Utility. Hopefully that will solve your problem.
