Windows 7: Superfluous responses required by Windows

Superfluous responses required by Windows

Whenever I restart my computer the Control Panel (which I have pinned to the taskbar) opens to no discernible purpose, and I always have to close it. Also, when I restart or just waken the computer from sleep I must always click on a square in the middle of the screen before I can resume operation. (Concerning this latter issue, that square apparently points to the user, but I am the only user.) Is there any way of making these operations of mine unnecessary? Could I either automate my response in each case, or, better, could I eliminate the issues altogether?

You may have programs running at startup that is causing this issue. Please see this tutorial to temporary disable them and see if the issue is resolved:

I'm not sure if this is what you mean.

Log On Automatically at Startup


Check that the Startup folders do not contain any entries that aren't required (e.g. Control Panel):
C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Hi - my first day here and am not techno savvy, so please allow for my ignorance! I have outlook (formerly hotmail) and never use Windows Live Mail, yet I see (quite baffliingly) that I have some emails of mine that are on there...some from past years. (?) I never did anything to initiate the...

Can I delete superfluous Win7 files for more space?
My new system has a 112 gb SSD for the system ( C: ) drive. It is obviously too small and dangerously close to running out of space. I've moved all the applications that I can to another drive, but I still require more "system drive" space. Since I'm running Win7 x64, can I move the "duplicate"...
