    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
    Windows
    Start Menu
    Programs
    Startup
    
    If that doesn't work, there's a way to check the registry to see what it 
    starts on boot up.
    
    Start
    Run
    Regedit
    (From here on, click on the little plus sign at the beginning of these lines)
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    Software
    Microsoft
    Windows
    CurrentVersion
    Cick once on anything that starts with "Run" - things started automatically 
    will appear in right panel.
    
    Then do the same thing starting with
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    
    If you want to save anything in the right panel before deleting it, click 
    on it once and then
    Registry (upper left of screen)
    Export
    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.
