Default Registry Edit

A while ago I did one of the registry edits from The Screensavers on TechTV, it makes a little popup window come up that says whatever you want it to say right before you login to windows when you start your computer, but now I want to get rid of it and I don't remember what I did I looked on The Screensavers website but I can't find it. Does anyone know how to get rid of it?

Why would they teach you that when you can make a simple VBScript and put it in the startup folder?

msgbox "REMINDER: Don't edit the registry unless you know what your doing and dont watch techtv unless it's to make fun of them."
