Close Microsoft Clip Gallery. Let the desktop be there, and then do the following:

Download and install CCleaner. Install it and run it. When it is open,

1. Click on Tools > Startup > Save to text file.
2. The Save As dialog will be opened. Click on Desktop, and then save.

Then upload the text file here. Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

Hopefully we will be able to come to a feasible solution to this issue after seeing that file.
