Three pop-up error messages / screens appear once comp has booted(I am running Windows 2000).
First big screen says "winsck," then a smaller screen says "Status," (which is blank) and then in the middle a little error box says "Unable to open dialog."
I can simply close these pop-ups by clicking on the "x" and continue to use the computer without any problems.
What i would like to know is whats causing this
and how do i permanently eliminate these messages. The pop-ups only occur during startup, and there are no other signs that anything is wrong with my computer.

google points to a possible trojan, but i have norton which has not picked up anything and symantec is a bit vague as to correcting

any help ?
