Get startup cpl free from http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml run it and it will show you whats running at startup. Its one of the startup programs. We cant say much more than that but if you posted a list we may spot it.
It may be clear once you see whats running you just untick it to stop it and you can go back and tick it if its the wrong thing.
I would guess its probably a PB prog so look for anything which may be in a dir PB

Thanks,
I tried that but didnt have much luck with it
It doesnt appear on startup. It pops up whenever I open my browser for the first time.
It also comes up when I open control panel
More annoyingly it pops right back again each time I click ok and it takes 3 or 4 attempts to get it to stop

Re: Error message

Could be a driver issue. Are there any issues showing in Device Manager? Right click My Computer, click Properties, then the Hardware tab, the Device Manager. Check for yellow exclamation marks against any audio devices, which mean the driver is missing.
