Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bits 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Yeah right Layback Bear.
I used some time IObit System Care which offers a cleanup of start menu's en to "improve" the start up.

Thanks again.

I highly recommend not using anything made by IObits. Such things have cause many problems.
