I do not have this problem. I set up konqueror a while back and do not remember exactly how the setup worked. I may not have the problem because I am running SuSE. Also I use Mozilla and only use konqueror when I have messed up a Mozilla upgrade.

One thing that you could try is to start konqueror, set the URL window to completely blank, click on Settings, and Save View Profile "Web Browser". That should cause konqueror to start without looking for an initial web page. It is worth a try, anyway.

I just tried what jailbait mentioned.

Go to the page (or directory) that you want konq to start on, then in 'settings' hit 'save view profile "web browser"' and konq will start there every time.

So you might know: Some browser based program (internet banking) changed th Iexplorer 5.0 of my system so it now always starts after boot.

It is not located in the autorun directories, as far as I see not caused in the registry, seems to encrypt its message it diplays in the status bar since I searched my entire system for that string and did not find it -- and I'm out of ideas. What would you do (I mean except using Linux? )

The shit of Microsuck does it _again_. Well, at least it's at the fault of some stupid banking program rather then the fault of "Richest and most important company to our society today." Although if it was a a feature of Microsuck I definately wouldn't be the least bit surprised.

Anyways, theres no point to this post if all I do is flame Microsuck so here goes.

There are programs out there (tweakui is one of them, crap... i forget the other... yeah Tweak XP is its name i think) that give you the ability to view stuff that is invoked upon startup without having to be smart at where the commands are called. They are shareware and do cost money, but as most shareware is - you get a limited trial (30 days for Tweak XP, and as i think of it i think tweakui is freeware) Also if I recall there is a tweakui for both Windows 9x (95/98/ME) and NT based (NT 4.0/2000/XP)

Hope the imput was helpful.

Yeah, that's about the feeling I have, when that blasted Iexplorer opens. Thanks, I'll try tweakui, I had it even installed long ago, I just didn't do the connection to try to use it in this case. Thanks again .

Yeah, TweakUI is a free MS "powertoy". Don't think it really has anything about startup on it, though,. Might try msconfig and see if anything's going on there. Weird that it doesn't show in the registry. Virtually *everything* shows in there in one way or another. It just doesn't show very *well*.
