    When my wife's Limited User Account is started, it automatically begins
    playing the sound file of a U-tube video clip she looked at on the
    Internet a few days ago. There is no program showing in the Task Bar.
    The PC works normally while this 4 minute file is playing. This does not
    happen without an Internet Connection. I've looked through all the start
    folders I could think of to find what might be causing this. Also tried
    several Restore Points but the Restore Function failed to work. Thanks
    for any Help you can offer. Helmut

    Dump the stuff in the Temporary Internet and Temporary files folders.

    Win Explorer
    Right click drive
    Properties
    Disk cleanup
    ____________

    Might also...
    Start
    Run
    Type in "msconfig" (no quotes)
    Startup tab
    and see if something stands out.

    If she uses Firefox, and it loads automatically, click Tools, Options,
    and on the General tab, change "When Firefox starts:" to "Show my home
    page". "Show my windows and tabs from last time" can cause the problems
    she is experiencing (after Firefox is started, of course".

    Thank you both for your Help. Following your suggestions did not fix the
    problem. I now created a new User Account for my wife to get rid of it.
    Thanks again,Helmut
