    this is because the HKLM/Software/Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run key has an entry whose command line does not contain quotes around it. Use regedit to navigate there and look for an entry that lists "C:\Program files" but does not have quotes around the path. Then place quotes at the front and end of the program name.

      Also check Current_user, as well as your startup folder, and the RunOnce keys in both HKLM and HKCU.


      Also be advised that (IIRC) both the windows and the "Windows NT" key under the software/Microsoft key have "Run" keys.

          I  decide to log in as a another user and gave that user administrator privileges and that message doesn't come up for that user. thanks for the help. it does take awhile to boot up to the desk top.
