    Does your virus checker run upon startup? I'm guessing it might be some 
    other program running in the background on your desktop that isn't running 
    on the laptop.
    Try left clicking on stuff on your task bar (bottom right corner of screen) 
    and disable things one at a time. One of them might be the problem. Look 
    for one running on the desktop that isn't running on the laptop.
      Here's how to find out what's started on bootup.
    Run Windows Explorer or My Computer and look in
    Start Menu
    If that doesn't work, there's a way to check the registry to see what it 
    starts on boot up.
    (From here on, click on the little plus sign at the beginning of these lines)
    Cick once on anything that starts with "Run" - things started automatically 
    will appear in right panel.
    Then do the same thing starting with
    If you want to save anything in the right panel before deleting it, click 
    on it once and then
    Registry (upper left of screen)
    Name it.
    To restore it later, just go to My Documents and double click on the file 
    (ending with ".reg") and it puts it back.
    Hope I didn't scare you here - you can do a side by side comparison for 
    suspicious programs.
    BTW, this is also how you can find virus and trojan programs without a 
    virus checker.
