Hi Guys,

I am getting a weird message popup on my office computer, which has operating 
system Windows 2000 Prof and Internet Explorer 6.   About once each hour I get 
a pop-up message that says "You have been working for 30 minutes." and when I 
click on OK it goes a way.   When it popup I engage the Task Manager and I 
cannot see what it is.

Any suggestions anyone.   How can I identify the program?
Well heck, as I typed this silly little message it dawn on me to check msconfig 
and see what is new in startup and the new file is "KMW_Run.exe" and when I 
google for it I discovered that it is Kensington MouseWorks.   Remember when my 
mouse was acing like it hated to click on an icon, so I purchase a mouse with a 
ball and installed it and that is what is created the "You have been working 
for 30 minutes" (I think).   I took the new mouse ball off and put a simple 
cheap Dell mouse and all is well.

Thanks for your ear.

This url will identify all the startup items in msconfig if you wanted to know.
