Windows 7: VIA HD desk "do you want to run this application"

VIA HD desk "do you want to run this application"

I've just bought and installed win 74 bit (sp1 streamlined) on a new SSD. Great.

Apart from for some reason (I've installed Win7, 3 times on this PC - due to hardware upgrades) this time - it didn't detect the onboard VIA HA audio.

I had to install the driver separately. Did that through the downloads page for the motherboard on the Asus site.

Each bootup I'm now being asked in a dialogue if I want to run hddesk.exe or whatever it is, as though windows hasn't installed it and want's to run it again.

I don't want to click "don't ask for this type of file again" - I just want to tell it to not ask for THIS file.

When I run HDdesk through the system tray it's there and works fine.

Anyone got any bright ideas?

Cheers

John

Hello John, have you had the bright idea to check the msconfig startup file?
