I always respond to messages from the Action Center. There's currently no reported issues - there usually isn't - the only thing that I've ever been notified lately at all was the last time my AV subscription license ran out.

Your minidump settings are correct. Excellent.

WIN | type MSCONFIG | ENTER | STARTUP tab |
Uncheck ALL

REBOOT!

You have just told Win 7 to not run unchecked programs at start up time.

You have not disabled the programs. They will be run when needed.

WIN = key with the Microsoft logo on top
