This and your other thread are the same issue.

Do you own any HP products? (HP PC, printer, scanner, etc)?

Yes, I do have an HP all in one printer. Is that what is it?
Thanks for your help.

Yes, C:\Program Files\Overland contains a file called overland.cab, which contains a program called hptskmgr.exe. This is the process which runs every 15 minutes, it's an auto update utility.
The HP tools have an option to adjust the interval time, and possibly disable it. If you can't disable it there, you need to disable hpcmpmgr.exe from Start->Run->msconfig->Startup

Thanks for your help. Because something launches about every 15 mins for about 1 sec in the taskbar. It is just long enough to turn off screen saver. I can not click on it because it disappears. I have watched the task manager and nothing appears when it comes up. Do you think that it is the hptskmgr.exe that is causing this? Or do you think it is something else that is launching. Thanks again for all of your help.

No, it's most definitely the hptskmgr.exe causing it, you should be able to disable it following either of the instructions I mentioned.

Thanks again for all of your help. That seemed to solve the problem. Now I get a pop-up every time I start up my computer regarding the "system configuration utility" which is in diagnositic or selective startup mode. Sould I change it to normal startup or just click the box telling it not to run at start up.

Thanks again.

Tick the box telling it not to show at startup.
