Windows 7: Start up question

Start up question

Don't know how to 'search' for an answer to this problem. WIN7 used to go straight to desktop without stopping. Now it stops, shows a small icon with my name, and will not continue until I click on the icon. I want to eliminate this step, but can't find out how to do it. I suppose I did something to cause this (or maybe it was the grandkids). Thanks

I'm not sure about Windows 7, but that used to happen once the .Net Frameworks were installed.

If you have multiple people, especially kids, using the computer, you should be using separate user accounts for overall system protection. You can password protect your account, so you can always get in to fix issues.

My almost 4 year-old nephew can recognize a picture I set for him and click into his user account to play his games...so kids can definitely handle it.

Can anyone tell me what makes win7 decide to attach the number 2 in parentheses to a start menu item - that part of the menu above the windows orb that lists the program recently and frequently used? Doesn't hurt anything but it annoys me. thanks

Hi All. Hopefully a silly question this. I have been running 7 now for a couple of months, and generally like it a lot. One small thing did strike me as odd though. Coming from XP, the list of programs in the left pane of the start menu, used to continually update with the most recent...

Start Menu Question
I have a number of items in my start menu and am about to run out of space for them, that is, I'm running out of vertical range. I'm just wondering what happens if your start menu fills up? Do some items get truncated, is another column created? How should I look at this?
