Windows 7: Windows Sticky Notes Grrr

11 May 2010   #11


Legend Loki, thankyou!
My computer doesn't have that registry entry, my wifes(the problem one) does....I last resorted and deleted the entry, ensured there were no notes open, or saved. Upon startup a blank note popped up, and the entry had returned

She's said meh don't worry about it, but being male, I HAVE to resolve this! lol

Is there some type of software (A program like Retunil) on her PC that may be recreating the Startup?

Win7 32bit - via BOOTCAMP on Macbook Pro 17"

I have exactly the same problem. It doesn't exist in the admin user, however once the sticky note exe had been opened on a limited user account, it launches at startup every time.

Not listed in startup under msconfig, reg key removed - it reappears on restart, no utilities running to restore startup list.

If you're not finding it in startup or your registry, try deleting StickyNotes.snt from AppData\Microsoft\Sticky Notes. Once I toasted that, the problem went away for me.

Be aware that if you do this, you will lose any data you've entered into Sticky Notes up until this point, but if you're trying to kill it, that's generally not an issue.
