Cant find out why or where folder is being opened at startup

(OP)
I'm sitting here at my company's accounting PC , installed with Win95C, for some reason everytime someone starts up the computer, after win95 gets loaded, the C:\Program Files\Cybermedia folder window opens up , I Cant find it in startup, system.ini, win.ini, \windows\current version\run or \runonce(registry), just cant figure out why its poping up, and She(my CEO's wife) would really like that taken care of.

RE: Cant find out why or where folder is being opened at startup

well, the way that I get rid of things starting at startup is (but this is in win98):

go START>Program Files>Acessories>System Tools>System Information.

when the window pops up, go tools>System Configuration Utility

another window should pop up. click on the tab labeled startup, and there is a list of thing which you can check, or uncheck that run at startup. But be verry verry carefull, you might just turn off the startbar or something like that!

I fixed the problem by uninstalling Cybermedia OilChange and uninstaller since we dont need them anymore, also your information was extremely useful, I never knew about that thing, despite the fact I knew about everything else hehe.
