Hello and welcome.

Where are you seeing these reminders?

May I connect with you remotely so I can take a look?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
These reminders pop up when signing on each time.
I'm sorry but I do not allow remote connections (been burnt before), I'm accessing the web via an ASUS lap top.
Expert:  Martin replied 5 months ago.

No problem, where are you signing in?

To your email?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
At start up after signing in to Windows.
Expert:  Martin replied 5 months ago.

Thanks.

What version of Windows are you running?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Windows 7
Expert:  Martin replied 5 months ago.

Press WinKey+R to bring up a Run box

Inside the Run box, type msconfig then hit Enter

Expert:  Martin replied 5 months ago.

Click onto the Startup tab and review all the boxes that are ticked.

Find the program that's giving you that error message and untick it as you don't need it on startup.

Let me know when you get this far

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I had normal startup selected, when I changed to selective startup, load system services & load startup items were ticked but use original boot config was not.
Expert:  Martin replied 5 months ago.

You don't need to tick selective or normal startup - if you did, click cancel then go back into that.

You need to click on the Startup Tab so the list of startup items comes up

Expert:  Martin replied 5 months ago.

This is what it looks like

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Have done so, how do I identify the problem.
Expert:  Martin replied 5 months ago.

What program is it your have 590 days subscription left on?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Kaspersky Internet security 1PC/2 Years.
Expert:  Martin replied 5 months ago.

When do you get the reminder?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Each day after signing on.
Expert:  Martin replied 5 months ago.

Ok, check under the Startup tab for anything that has to do with Kaspersky and untick it, then click OK and restart the computer.

Let's use this as a way to isolate the problem.

Also if you could, before you restart, write down all the entries you see and unticked so I know what you did.

We could get this going much faster via a remote session if you change your mind on that but for now let's proceed with that.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I agree it would be easier to connect but I don't want to pay the $55.00, so I guess I'll have to just live with the message until renewal time, thanks for all your assistance.
Expert:  Martin replied 5 months ago.

Hello

Expert:  Martin replied 5 months ago.

I'd really like to help you to get this going and I can understand your view on this, let me see if I can modify the price for you

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Thank you Martin, but I have decided to have a local technician have a look at the problem.
I thank you for your offer & assistance but no longer need your help, have a good weekend.
Cheers.
Peter
