Windows 7: Something Annoying In Startup

Something Annoying In Startup

Hey so I get this error every time I boot up.

So I've used autoruns and looked for it, but nothing. So then I went into the folder and placed a "dummy" exe file in there, but for some reason I'm still getting this error.

So any help would be appreciated.

Tried reinstalling f.lux, and uninstalling/rebooting to see if it goes away?

F.lux: software to make your life better

Or might run something like CCleaner to see if there's any left over registry entries of f.lux and remove them.

Hi blksith0,
Welcome to Seven Forums.

Check to see if you have a rouge program set to run at startup:
Click Start >> type MSCONFIG >> press enter and the go to the tab called 'Startup'

Un-tick any programs that shouldn't be running, if you are unsure about any then post a screen shot of the list and post back here for advise.

Yeah I tried reinstalling and uninstalling with Revo Uninstaller, but that didnt work. CCleaner scan didnt fix anything as well, unfortunately.
I'm just really confused as to why its saying it cant find it, when there's clearly a file there with the same name.

That's happened to me a few times. Put something over to delay, then forgot I did it.
