Windows 7: Why am I getting a "Getting Started" screen when I log on?

Why am I getting a "Getting Started" screen when I log on?

It wasn't there before. And I know it wasn't there after I installed SP1. It just started popping up a few days ago, and there is no check box to say "don't show again" or something.

Type msconfig in start search box.

Look under the startup tab for Microsoft Windows Operating System - if it says welcome centre, untick it. Apply. Should be gone at next restart.

You may want to check your Startup folder to see if the Getting Started link has somehow ended up in there.
