    I was looking in WIN.INI tab of the system configuration utility (run > msconfig) when i see the entry called

    [Internet],

    so I open it and there is one entry

    URLID=13589#####

    I am using the wild cards because I don't know if this is something that identifies my computer. in fact, i dont know anything about it.

    I looked up on google and there was nothing. I looked it up after truncation the last five numbers and using *, all that came back were just four entries that don't look familiar. So I am just curious...what is this? I am always wary of things that refer to online locations unfamiliar to me. problably just being paranoid.

    That's not very reassuring.

    I while back I installed a program that records internet radio station's. I wonder if it has to do with that program.
