That gives your system information, if you type it in the start search box. Do you have a shortcut pointing to it?

Nothing needs to start up with Win7 except AV and gadgets if you use them.

Anything else is personal preference of whether you want it started with computer or when you click on it.

Sorry to be so late replying, I was hoping to get an email with all replies.

I do not have a shortcut, I get it by going to run and type in its name.

I've got a spanking, brand new computer and I hardly think the files are messed up or missing already. Thanks anyway.

Hello,

It's not the File mess up when you install a Program(most of them) tend to go to Startup that will slow down the System as well as startup. As Gregrocker suggested we just need Gadget and AV on startup other are unnecessary. But ultimately it's your choice. But i really don't think you need MSINOF32 at your startup. if you want to disable follow Bare foot kid's Tutorial.

Hope this helps,
Captain
