Windows 7: annoying note pad popup at log on

annoying note pad popup at log on

Hi All
this is my first post so please be gentle

i have tried most of the w7 builds so far 7000 7022 7048 with no problems at all
downloaded and installed 7057 last night (fresh install)
all looks good except every time i boot/logon there is a open txt file on the desktop
the text has something about the shell version in it (cant be more specific as i am at work at the moment and not in front of the machine)

has anyone else encountered this minor annoyance ?
and how do you get rid of it ?

thanks in advance

Hey guys. I'm getting very annoyed with this popup that keeps appearing in IE8 :banghead:. It doesn't appear on Firefox nor Chrome. I've looked very briefly through here and I couldn't see anyone else posted this. This is happening on both Windows 7 and XP, with or without a 3rd party...

The new tray icon popup is annoying
As someone who likes Windows' tray icons as they were in Windows 95 until Vista, I wonder if there is a way to turn off the icon popup (and make the icons appear sidewards again) or, at least, to close it automatically instantly instead of having to wait for a few moments after clicking an icon...
