Whenever I start my computer up, after I log in this window comes up with a smilie face in it like so > :)

Its just a window with an x box in the top right hand corner. an ok button and that mocking :) face.

The thing is... I don't know what this is or where it comes from. Antivirus doesn't seem to pick it up and after extensive googling I have found nothing out.

Seeing as computer forums ain't any help I thought to myself... those guys at Bullshido definately will.

Anybody got any suggestions...

I can see how your problem relates to homosexuality.

Download spybot s&d, run that, see what it finds. You may need to boot to safemode and run it.

Then download adaware and do the same.

If that doesn't find anything:

start -> run -> msconfig

Go to the startup tab and see what is listed there, remove anything that looks weird. I don't believe there'll be anything system breaking to remove in there.

Well you could always just go threw MSConfig. You can open it by typing msconfig into your Run program thingamagig. That let's you chose what programs and systems start up when your computer boots up.

Dude. If this is a Mac problem and there's a smiley face, there's fucking nothing else. Smiley face + Mac = serious beef.

That, and the 'x' is in the top right. Apple put it in the top left.

[whew] Good, for a minute I thought HE was gay.

Try a boot log (http://aumha.org/win4/a/bootlog.php)

This guy made a nice little utility that will ask you if you want to let a program start itself at boot or not when it tries to do so.

It is called StartupMonitor.

Can be used to help PREVENT spyware from running at boot up.

Or you could not use Windows.

Get a Mac. (http://apple.com/store)

Otherwise Hold Shift when you startup to boot in safemode, and/or check the "Startup Items" folder.
