MS Office Opens Word or Excel during Bo

By NetAdminTech ·
I believe what causes this is deleting findfast.exe and related files. I did this because of tips given by my ISP on optimizing your computer. According to my ISP Findfast is a memory hog and not needed. I have created this bootup problem severaltimes and had to reload the software. I would like to fix the problem without reloading.

I can almost gaurantee that findfast has nothing to do with it. One idea is to go to START>RUN (type)MSCONFIG go to the Startup tab. This shows all things that happen at startup.....Uncheck the ones that look like they could be involved and try again. A little bit of trial and error, but I think you will find the culprit

MSconfig is definitely the way to go with this one. Thanks a bunch.

I agree with the first reply, but Im still wondering what platform you are operating under ie Win3.0,win3.1,win3.11,win95a,b,c,win98 or win98se. This is critical to the solution. let me know!

Thanks. To answer your question. I was using Win98. I'm not sure but msconfig doesn't work on any other platforms does it?
