How come when I start up my computer I am getting an Open With box?

by on October 6, 2010

Q: When I start up my hp g60 laptop a window pops up saying open with… I have opened it with MS Word and it says things like

Interface list
IPv4 route table
active routes
things of that nature.

My questions are 1. what caused this to happen? 2. How do I make it not pop up? and 3. Is it doing anything harmful to my computer

  1.  

    Check in your start menu > All programs > startup. Let me know what is listed in there. It sounds like there is file that is trying to be opened with an application that is no longer installed on your computer. Did you recently have a virus that was cleared out?

     
  2.  

    it has Pda Net Desktop and WDDMStatus and no i dont have any virus that was cleared out

     
  3.  

    What OS are you running?

    google talk installs and doesn’t have quotes around it in the registry. Look at the last post on the thread.
