Windows 7: Screen Resolution opening on Startup

25 Aug 2009   #1

Windows 7 Build 7100
Screen Resolution opening on Startup

Every time I boot up the computer the screen resolution panel from the Control Panel is open on the desktop. I've checked in the startup folder and it's not on the list of things to open. I'm running multiple screens, 2 off a Nvidia GeForce 9600 and one off a EVGA USB connection. Have the latest drivers for both although I suspect the GeForce driver is pretty buggy.

Any idea what else to try?

Thanks for any help.

It is reasonable to conclude that your concerns regarding a buggy driver are well-founded. Address the matter and test.

Startup programs not opening during startup
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. I have CPU-Z, Hardware Monitor Pro and Resource Monitor shortcuts in the startup folder. If I go to MSCONFIG I can see that the items are there to be started during startup. What am I doing wrong that will not allow these programs to start up?
