Default Windows Startup Opens TBpanel.exe...How Do I Prevent This??


Everytime i start windows and log in i get this badboy pop up:

...I know it's nothing dangerous; it's a small program to optimize my Gainward GPU. Still, i removed the program because i never use it and, as the image shows, it is still trying to open when i login!

How do i stop this from happening??? (It's not in the Startup folder btw...Don't know if that makes any difference).

Have a look at....
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Run

Allthough the program may not be in your startup folder, theres a good chance its hidden itself in the registry start up file. Just find it and remove it. :thumby:
