B. Is NetZero starting automatically when you turn on your computer?

If NetZero starts automatically when you turn on your computer, it is because you selected the option to Launch NetZero when I startup my computer from the Options in the system tray icon or the Companion's Options menu. To turn this option off, complete the steps below:

  1. Click the NetZero icon in the system tray.
  2. Select Options.
  3. Select Launch NetZero when I startup my computer to remove the check next to it.

NetZero will no longer start automatically when you start Windows.

Back to the menu


C. Reboot your computer

If you continue to receive this error, you may need to reboot your computer. To do this:

  1. Click the Windows Start button and select Shut Down.
  2. Select Restart.
