not sure what program is causing it but because it happens on startup ,it should be easy to fix ,get him to go to start/all programs and check the startup folder shortcut there and remove any program shortcuts there MS office usually puts itself there ., if none there get him to go to start/run ,and type in "msconfig" minus the quotes,and go to startup tap along the top ,and uncheck the programs that don't need to be running on startup ,like office and yahooo messanger and windows messenger and the like .
