Hi

Whenever I start my Vista Computer I get this popup

"Xtra INstall Assistant"

How can I stop this... What is it?  I am on Woosh but was with Xtra.

Thank you

Is there anything in your programs and feautres, in the control panel?

If you use ccleaner/hijackthis do their uninstallers see anything?

Is this program in your start-up folder, or can you see it in the start-up list in either the programs above, or when you 'search' for msconfig in the start orb?

I couldn't find it in the startup folder

I also Look in System Configuration Utility in Services and Startup

It was not in Control Panel Add/remove either programs

Very mysterious
