    "Hotkey" ?

    when I boot up the compter (win xp home) I get an icon appearing on the taskbar saying 'Hotkey' as if some program is running. I have seen this on other machines too.

    Can anybody explain what this is and why it happens - should it happen etc?
    should it be stopped etc?

    HKey

    I'd like to know more about HotKeys too. My HP has always run fine. I ran a Registry Cleaner the other day and it picked out 25 HKey entries, so I deleted them (recoverable). Immediately ran the cleaner again and it picked out 130 HKey entries. Too nervious to take them out on top of the previous 25 until I see how the putr runs for awhile. Been running fine. HP loads these things that they want you to see when you start up. ( This is not Gospel, just a thought.) Boy, I hope that we're talking about the same thing!! DRB

    After exhausting research(about 1.5 minutes), I see that my comments have absolutely nothing to do with your question. Next time I will "look before I leak"! Sorry. DRB
