Default Unknown file 41669270.asw

I am having a startup problem with my pc which I hope someone here will be able to give me some insight on how to solve this issue. Here goes:

Firstly, I am using Windows98 with cable internet connection.

At the startup, there is an additional file labeled as 41669270.asw (cannot be found in a Google search) appears in a menu box and is searching for a application to open it. The only way I can get around this is to close the box. At times this doesn't work and the system freezes up.

Another issue is that my son uses the cable hookup on his television to play Madden across the nation with other users (we only have one cable line). Sometimes I think this could be the problem.

Any help will be appreciated.

so im guessing he uses not a televison, but a PS2 or XBox? you can't delete the file or take it out of startup using msconfig?

He uses the television to play Madden, but it does require a cable hookup.

Can you tell how to remove the file from msconfig?
