Specs: Windows XP
After login for a few seconds check version shows up in the taskbar. I have no idea what this is referring to. I've tried clicking on it and nothing shows up. Anyone have a fix?

Sounds like a driver version checker that came loaded with a printer driver or something. You could go see if it is loading in the registry and remove it. Not sure how comfortable you are with the registry but try this...

Start -> Run -> Type REGET -> Open HKEY LOCAL MACHINE -> Open Software -> Open Microsoft -> Open Windows -> Open Current Version -> Open Run.

Here is where all of the programs are that will run when your computer boots. See if you can find your program their and delete it.

Sorry, we could not be of more help but without knowing who made the version checker it is hard to trouble shoot. Can you give us some more information on this program?

Did you ever figure this out. I am having the same issue. This item only shows up for me though when I am having connection issues so I am trying to troubleshoot.

I cannot run "REGET" so that didn't work for me

"I cannot run "REGET" so that didn't work for me"

That should be REGEDIT not REGET.

I think found the problem. It is coming from AS400 program installed on the computers. It is'nt causing any problems but just annoying to the users. I have check in the "regedit' but didn't find the suggested correction.
