Removing getting started

Sorry guys but how do I stop the getting started screen appearing on my desktop everytime I boot windows? I am running Ultimate x64 and love it, it is just this screen drives me crazy and I have been going round in circles trying to get rid of it.

Type msconfig in 'Run'. Select the Start tab, look for something like Microsoft Windows Operating System "ShowWelcomeCenter" and uncheck the box.

There should be a check box in the lower left hand corner of the "Getting Started" window. Just click that off, and that should take care of the problem. If that doesn't work check your Startup Folder in the start menu, and see if the Getting Started file is in there; if so delete the bugger.

By the way, Welcome To The Seven Forums.
