Check out this info page on the Symantec site.

It is a Spyware/Adware type of thing and it sounds like you have probably removed the software, but not removed the Win.ini file reference.

You should be able to click on Start > Run and then type in "msconfig" without the quotation marks, click OK, and that will open up a utility that will allow you to edit the win.ini file easily and remove the offending entry.

Good luck.
