I didn't know what else to call this thing, that's been popping up on my laptop for a month now and it's rather annoying. Whenever my useless laptop starts and sooner or later loads Windows (takes ages), and whenever everything starts to load this box keeps appearing and I have no idea what it is nor what it is called because no text loads at all. Just a few seconds (I couldn't get the screen), another thing loaded up that belonged to this "thing" called Forum1 (it wasn't responding then it went off before I could get a screen) but now I keep getting the same box everyday and I don't know what it is nor where it's coming from.

Maybe it's some sad lonely hacker put a virus on, have you joined any new questionable or other forums recently?

Not really. I don't join forums that often, I'm a member of here (still disliked by a few more than a few), Full Metal Glitch's forums another forum my own and that's about it. Comodo has done scan's but hasn't found anything and would of told me about any unwanted/unknown things trying to get in. I don't know where it's coming from as I don't know the name, and this morning I had a quick box saying Warning!: [blank] and vanished quicker than I could find out what it was. I don't know if it's my system. Here's what my laptop is:

Manufacture: Fujitsu
Fujitsu Amilo Netbook (it's a bit big for a netbook but it says on the bottom it's a netbook)
Windows Vista Home Basic - Service Pack 2
Celeron(R) Dual-Core CPU T3000 @ 1.80GHz 1.79GHz
32-bit Operating System
1.00 GB RAM

I haven't touched anything, other than downgrading Live Messenger, but this box thing has been popping up long before the 2011 update of Live Messenger.

have you checked msconfig ? that shows everything in registry that runs on startup.
Also check your start menu\programs\startup. For your account and for all users.

It's in the Windows/System32 directory, you can quickly access it with Run by entering "msconfig.exe". A window should open up named "System Configuration". You can click the "Startup" tab to view items and uncheck the ones which may look a little suspicious.

Please note:

While I'm one of the staff who runs the site, Abwayax is the founder and manages the technical side of the site (specifically the server, but I can do forum/wiki stuff if you like, I suggest if you do to make a thread about it to gather a consensus). Still feel free to contact me about higher site issues though; I will forward them to Abwayax if needed. :)

Thank you Nyapon for this lovely artwork. :3

Vista gets Start Search, but half the time it's clueless on what I'm looking for. Eh, I'll check manually, so see what I can find, if not I'll murder this laptop.

Post Edit:

I got no idea what I'm looking for as I have no idea what this thing is called, and I have no clear memory on when it starting turning up. I've got the System Configuration up, but what pops up everyday isn't in the list.
