IE and startup

By lkane ·
My question is this:

After logging into my NT4 workstation - Internet Explorer tries to load (its not in the startup anywhere) and comes back with an error message saying the page can't be displayed. Well - I don't want the page to be displayed anyway. I'm not sure if this is in the registry or not....help....

Check the profiles for all users and default users for startup.

OR try check services in control panel though you should not find it in there

Most likely you have software utility of some sort that is trying to do automatically update itself like Norton does. This has been set to check updates when rebooted.

Clue maybe in the web page it is trying to load. Start the offending software and see under tools or options NOT to autoupdate!

If not sure which software is causing it may haveto uninstall one utility at a time and re-install until eliminate the culprit!

Enjoy

The problem lies in the registry. Goto www.regedit.com to find out where to locate the programs that startup during the boot proccess

Try this first before hacking your way through the registry. Try logging on as local adminstrator, delete the profile that is causing you the grief, then log back in as that user. A new profile will be generated and the error should go away. If it is the installation of IE, simply open Control Panel, Add/Remove IE and click on the repair option. NOTE: you must be logged in with administrative permissions.

You can check the "Hkey_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" key for any entries that may be causing this in addition to the other answers given.
