|Do you have any idea what went on just before the problem appeared again ?|
E.g. did someone use a CD ?
Do you remember what you or whoever did to get rid of the problem the first time ?
Apparently this vtruck.exe was included on several different CDs for setting up a broadband (high sppeed internet) connection.
This is a "Frequent problem" with Broadband Installer CDs v1.1 and 1.2. It was addressed in V1.3, but still occurs.
It can be caused by people clicking on the "X" in the top right of the Broadband Installer application rather than using the closedown options in the application.
The typical error message which shows on start up is:
Please insert your CD-ROM with the Virtual Truck Program. Looking for file:
Where F:\ is the CD Rom drive in this case.
To correct this, do the following (Windows 98 example)
Enter msconfig and click OK.
Click on the Win.ini tab.
Click the [+] sign beside [windows].
If you see an entry "run= involving \vtagent\reboot.exe", then untick it.
Click OK to exit.
For Windows XP
From my computer, navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup and delete the vtagent icon
At least some of the steps at the link in Derek's response 1 should get rid of the problem
