About a week ago I cleared a few programs from my laptop (I need the space), amongst them the BBC iPlayer launch program. Now, every time on boot up I get this:

How do I get rid of it? Any suggestions gratefully received.

Is it in your 'startup' items? If so, just delete it.....or make sure your shortcut link is intact.

OMG! Could it be that simple Jacko. I'm embarassed.

You know, I assumed that when you use ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS, everything to do with that program is removed. WRONGG!!!

Thanks anyway. Excuse me while I remove this egg from my face.

Lol, don't be embarrassed mate, it's how i found out! :blush:

You could also check msconfig to see if there is any residual startup processes for whatever you allegedly removed.
