While I'm looking at the submitted files, please carry out the following, precisely as written. I prefer use of SPECCY as that fetches info that is really useful to use.

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Manufacturer and Model and
ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

You will find that in Speccy, you can select info from the display
using your mouse/touchpad and then paste that info into your specs.

SIW is a marvelous program, but the free version does not offer
this capability.

You have just told Win 7 to not run unchecked programs at start up time.

You have not disabled the programs. They will be run when needed.

Hey Karl,

Thanks a TON for taking the time to help me out! Just as an FYI, I am diagnosing my employer's computer, and I only do this on work days, and even then only on certain specified days. Just wanted to let you know why I'm so erratic in my posting. Hope this doesn't prove too frustrating. I will carry out your suggestions ASAP.
