Curious Empty Frame on screen

For some time I have seen two frames appear momentarily on the screen - far to quick to read the heading. By using a camcorder to record the screen from boot up I managed to get a view of that frame (although not a good one!) The heading of the frame contains the words "Hotmail.com - Windows Live - Mozilla firefox" I am indeed using Firefox 4 and the OS is Win7. The frames are both empty.

Has anyone experienced similar frames appearing briefly a short time after booting up and know how to stop them.

Advice welcomed.

Lotvic: We appear to be out of sync 8-)). As you say' 'It's nowt to worry about' - like your use of the word 'nowt' - it's not often that I see or hear that in this area (W'ton) - although I originate from an area where it is/was in common use (Derbyshire) and still use the word myself. I'll have another look at the Startup and Services tabs in msConfig. Proves one thing Lotvic - don't mess with things you don't fully understand - but then, we would never learn anything if that was the case would we!

Problem eventually solved by uninstalling a program which I had used to delay some starter programs when booting up. Uninstalling this restored the original booting order and when I did reboot - hey presto!
