How do I prevent an app creating a start menu folder at boot?

Hello, as I have been unsuccessful finding a solution at the ATI forums I thought I would try to pick the minds of all the clever people here..



Does anyone know how to prevent 'AMD VISION Engine Control Center' from creating a start menu program folder at boot?


Workarounds welcome.


Unfortunately un-installing it isn't an option.


OS: Win7 64bit


thanks!

I appreciate the reply but this has nothing to do with hardware specs.. unless you're suggesting I change to an NVIDIA card in which case I will tell you that I have a laptop

If it's okay I would rather my computer specs didn't follow my posts they are not very good..

Also this is a case of ATI either scripting or hard coding the initiation of this folder creation into their software. I'm looking for a software related workaround to prevent this.

Really anyone who thinks they need to know my hardware specs wouldn't be able to help me anyway..

They wouldn't find out the problem if you don't show us your specs.
