Hello
I have a couple of startup errors when I boot my desktop at home.  I will start with the first one and if we can resolve it I will post the second.

I used to run "Hostizzle" free VPN via OpenVPN till one day Hostizzle(as a provider) just stopped working.  So I bit the bullet and started paying for my VPN via WiTopia(best thing I ever did!).

With this change I no longer had a need for OpenVPN so I uninstalled it.  Ever since I did this I get the following error when I first boot my desktop:
 


I can just hit ok and it goes away but it is just the annoyance factor that it is there each time.

If I reinstall OpenVPN it goes away but when I take it off again I have the errors back again.

Any thoughts on what I can do to get rid of this?

Desktop is an i3, 4GB running Windows 7(64)

Thanks
Patrick

Maybe something in the registry that calls a program on startup.

Check the following keys

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

to see if there is an entry for your defunct VPN program.

Or possibly

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

and if there an entry to some exe that is the previous VPN, delete it
