Intel gfx related programs running at startup
My daughter got a laptop for Xmas, with Vista Home Premium and an Intel
X3100 gfx accelerator.

On startup, just after her desktop appears, Vista produces a pop-up asking
if she wants to run igfx<something>.exe. Regardless of whether she clicks
ok, another pops up asking if she wants to run hkcmd.exe. There's a 3rd
after this, can't remember the file name, but it's gfx card related.

There's a tick box about "Always ask for this type of file", but even if she
unticks it, it asks for the same 3 files every boot up.

Now what's bugging me is if I look in msconfig and the startup folder, these
3 files are NOT shown anywhere as set to run at start up.

Any ideas why it keeps asking and how to stop it?

Cheers, and merry Christmas!
