annoying popup

After installing a new Epson all-in-one printer, I am getting an annoying
popup whenever I start up the computer, directing me to 'please insert a
disk in drive F' (my DVD-ROM drive).  The message reappears when the desktop
is displayed.

The software loaded without a hitch and the printer works just fine.  I
tried placing the software disk in the drive, went through the menu until I
was offered to load additional software (which I really didn't need/want).
I then exited out and removed the disk.  The message still appears.

Anyone shed any light on this?  Thanks.

If you're using XP, try navigating to


in the registry, and searching there for the value that's starting this
thing with Windows. If you find it, try backing up the key (File ->
Export) then deleting the value.

I am using XP and went to the registry.  There was only one Epson key value
and it was for the drivers.

Your post did make me think about it and on a hunch, I ran msconfig and sure
enough, there was a new startup item.  It was related to a registration
reminder (which should not have raised up its head for two weeks.  I
unchecked the item and that cured the problem.

Thanks for your suggestion.
