    Hey, All!

    Win xp Task Manager shows an app called dosn3 as running every time I boot up. I did a search for it and it doesn't show up; when I stop it, nothing seems to happen. Anybody know what it is?

    Also, is ther a way to have Task Manger open on boot up?

    Thanks,

    Acebass

    :confused:

    i don't have any idea about dosn3! but about task manager, goto c:\windows\system32 directory and you can find taskmgr.exe then create a shortcut to your startup!

    (C:\Documents and Settings\username\Start Menu\Programs\Startup)

    gud luck!!!

    how long has that been happening? if you haven't already, run an up to date virus scanner

    Try running MSCONFIG and see it shows up there.

    i just had a thought that it might be the Bugbear virus going around. it uses random files names that start up with everything else...

    .. what have you been doing? You've got little programs everywhere... :)

    If it's not in your start up folder, and you can't find it in MSCONFIG, check out your registry and see if you can find them there.
