I have been playing with the Security properties for the shortcut and the exe file to get this to go away but no joy.
Does anyone have a step by step to stop this behavior?
Program shortcut requires UAC permission?

You guys are the balls!

Yeah, I noticed that too! I hope that doesn't happen with the Windows 7 Forum for a very long time, cause I still have a lot of questions (and answers, hopefully) about Windows 7, before I leave this Forum for good and move on to the Windows 8 Forum.

Windows 10x64 Build 1709

Splash Screen Shenanigans
I have posted this to one other tech site but have had no luck with a resolution. While this is not earth shattering in it's importance , it does annoy me.
I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium x64. It's an upgrade disc i got through Toshiba.
When I first turn on my computer, the little dot's come out to form the Windows flag on the splash screen and they "stutter". The first three come out , start to swirl then stop, hesitate for a second , start again , then stop....when the yellow(last) dot appears they all swirl a half turn stop again, then finish the swirl to form the pulsating windows flag. I don't notice anything "wrong" with the way 7 runs after that. (Windows 7 is a dream!)
It happened the first time i installed the upgrade and every single time since. It happens if i do a upgrade OR a clean install. (I've probably installed/upgraded 3 or 4 times since I got it last December)

I've ran the system file checker from the command line (sfc/scannow) and all that did was to change my start button back to the default. I've since changed it back, but i can't help but think that somethings just not right.
Could this be a "fault" with the disc itself? Everything seems to run great after I log in. It's more "head scratcher" than anything else but still........

Anyway, any advice anyone could give would be greatly appreciated.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Great thread ! Thanks for it.

Seeing this thread, I thought why I also not have a try . And the result I got is : (my date of Join is 12/17/2009)

Problem! Video is slow in virtula xp.
Hi! I m new here. In trouble and need your help guys! I installed windows xp sp2 in virtual pc, but when integrated, it plays video v e r y . . . slowly. The machine is also slow, too. Any solution?
using Asus m2n mx se plus motherboard, amd athlon x64 processor and 2 gb ram. Is it to install the dislay driver? please help me.
Actually I haven't installed VMWare tools. I did not know that there is something like that

Three things you must notice here , and it will make it crystal clear to you who am I actually
  • The first sentence I posted contains a typo ;
  • The first reply to the thread is after seven months of the post ; and
  • The thread is a miniature riot
During the search, I got a bit nostalgic. Found some info of my past which I want to suppress and forget, so edited two three posts (You please forgive me) .

And , one thing I also found ... why I am ever grateful to Uber Philf .

Britton, I believe Golden means 3rd of November 2011, as is of course more logical (day - month - year) and not 11th of March. It's your strange American way to put day and month in wrong order that causes confusion here :)

Heck, depending on what you need you could probably use a netbook with A Nvidia Ion chipset or a ULV Intel processor with dedicated graphics, then have an office set up with the necessary accessories.
just something to consider
Asus Eee with Ion: $484
2x2GB (4gb) ram kit: $90 (the specs say that this netbook can support 4gb)
Seagate 500gb 7200rpm 2.5 inch (I THINK that's what is inside the Asus): $108
slim lightscribe BD/DVD drive: $126
HP 20" display: $142
Logiteech wireless mouse/keyboard: $38
total: $988 (ish)

MY first computer was a Commodore-64 with a cassette tape drive in April 1983. I got the game Monopoly on tape & that was first game I ever played on a computer. My favorite game on it was "The Sword of Fargoal" I used a M$ dos program for the past 21 years in my business. I just recently had to upgrade it to a WinXp version as the software company is no longer supporting M$ dos. I have used just about every version of Windows on different computers in the past 25 years.
