Startup Programs Not Starting

Have just moved a few pc's at home to windows 7 (one ultimate and the others home premium) and am having problems with startup programs not starting. The programs are all in msconfig as startup items but when i log in they don't start. All of the users are administrators but the only way to get them to start is via the start menu. When i do start them it comes up with the warning about do you want the following program make changes to your computer. Is there anyway to make these programs run at startup?

Stopping Programs From Starting

Can anyone tell me how to stop programs from starting up in windows 7? I know how to do it in vista, & microsoft support says to do it basically the same, but it does not seem to have the same options to choose as vista. Meaning: the "software explorer" does not appear when you get into the "tools" section of defender. I can't seem to bring software explorer up at all. I have tried typing it in the seach option of the start menu also. Please help. I don't want many programs slowing my computer.

Programs Minimized Automatically After Starting

Shrinking programs. Virtually every program i open or download, minimizes itself to the taskbar after 1 or 2 seconds. The only way to continue install, or use, for example notepad, is to minimize every other open program. Then the one i need stays on desktop. I just had to re-format and everything is just about where i need it to be. I know i am not only person with this problem. Lots have same problem with games just stopping and going to taskbar (does not happen to me), and similar problem. Some have fixed it by taking out avg (don't have that). Wish i knew when or if i installed a prog that caused this mess.

Running win7 64bit (doesn't help) home prem.amd phenom2 x4 9404gb dual channel g_skill9800 nvidia gt 9800(it's really hard to minimize everything to look at cpu-z to see what i have)i had the below installed before prob started. I know what your thinking. Yeah, i've been burned. Ok, i'm paranoid. I also run online scanners when i have no other life. Norton suite, free from comcast threat fire super anti spyware microsoft security essentials. The ms essentials is latest and free.

Recommendations i've done the intermediate knowledge thing, i think it's a ms issue, but? Even uninstalled some nothing program recommended by a frenchman. Actually helped for day or two. Please, if u know anything, i'll send you, uh, something. 'puter useless at this point.

Startup Programs In Win 7

Docked vs. Undocked hardware profiles. As we all know in xp i could have programs like outlook and response point load on startup when i am docked at the office. But at home where i did not need outlook and response point to load at startup they would not because they i was undocked and they were not in the startup up folder for undocked. I am aware that this hardware profiles are no longer an option in 7. But is there a was to have some programs startup when i am at the office and not when i am at home?

Starting Gaming Program

I am having trouble with one of my gaming programs. I try to start it and it stops and says that buckingham.exe has stopped working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available. I have tried to get it to work on other versions of windows but it will not. When i bought the program, it said on the package that it operates on windows vista, xp, 2000, ect. I have other programs that say the same thing and they operate just fine. What can i do?

Trouble Starting Into Windows

I recently bought a computer from best buy and i have been using it for just over a month now. I left it on last night so it would finish doing what ever it was doing, and when i went to start using it today it was off for some reason, then when i turned it on, it said it hadn't shut down correctly, well i know that i wasn't doing anything so i just pressed start windows normally, it went and started fine up until the part where it has the windows logo and the bar scrolling below it. I tried to start it up a few times, then i remembered hp had their diagnostics program pre-installed on the computer.

When i went to use that, it said that every thing but the hard drives had passed, the hard drive gets to 50-something then fails the test. I tried starting into safemode, and it starts showing you all of the drivers, then it gets stuck on one of them, it was show-something or another. I have looked around and haven't found this to be a big issue, and i had current av software installed on there. Everything was up to date, i am really trying to avoid taking the computer back to best buy because they will want to charge me money to say something is wrong with the hard drives, because i already know that. So is there anything i can do to get this problem fixed or am i just going to have to take it in?

Win 7 Suddenly Very Slow Starting Up

After about 9-months of basically normal operation, win 7 is suddenly taking 10- to 15- minutes to get up and running. At the same time this happened, norton security announced that its virus definitions had become corrupted, and i should download them fresh, through the upgrade function; i did that, and norton is running fine now, but windows continues to have the slow startup problem.

I should mention, from the beginning, when i first installed win 7 (over vista, ) win 7 has been unable to perform the system restore function. Several times i have tried to restore the system back a day or two, but it has always failed to complete successfully. When this slow startup problem began, i ran the startup repair program; it asked if i would like to restore the system to an earlier time, but it also failed to complete. Startup repair says simply, it cannot
Automatically do the repair.

One other thing: occasionally, at startup, i get a notice that says, "you may be using an unauthorized version of windows- click here to get the authentic version. " I've always ignored this message, because first, i don't see how i can have a bogus version of win 7, since i bought it it from a reputable store, and second, i'm concerned this message may be a scam of some sort, possibly malware that got installed on my pc, so i'm reluctant to click on it. Any ideas?

Bios Boot Menu Goes To Starting Windows

I build a pc recently and bought windows 7 off of ebay. It was not opened and still had the plastic wrap around it. It came with a 64 bit and 32 bit home edition. When i installed win7 64 bit os on my pc, for some reason it installed as 32 bit. (I made absolutely sure that the cd read 64 bit and i reformatted 3 times to triple check {2 customs and 1 upgrade}). I talked to microsoft and they are trying to help me determine what the problem is.

My system is 64 bit compatible with:intel core i7-930 2. 8ghz lga 1366 130w quad-core desktop processor corsair dominator 6gb (3 x 2gb) 240-pin ddr3 sdram ddr3 1600 (pc3 12800) desktop memory xfx radeon hd 5770 (juniper xt) hd-577a-znfc video card gigabyte ga-x58a-ud3r atx intel motherboard me and the tech rep also ran windows 7 upgrade tool advisor to double check the my system was 64bit compatible, and the test showed that my system passed. So our next idea was to try the 32 bit disc to check if maybe the labels on the two discs were mixed up. When trying to boot the 32 bit disc, i hit f12 which takes me to the boot menu.

I select cdrom and when it asks for me to press a key to boot i do so. Once i pass this part it proceeds to "starting windows" and takes me to my login screen. I have tried using this disc on my laptop to see if maybe the disc was the problem but my laptop was able to start the setup. When trying to run the disc from my computer i receive the error:"the version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.

Dvd Hangs After Loading Files And Starting Windows

Install of windows 7 h. P from dvd hangs after "loading files" and "starting windows"; just have mouse icon on black screen. I am trying to do a clean install of win7 home premium off of 32bit dvd.
Pc is 1gb ram athlon 1700xp zotac nvidia 6200 agp graphics card on a pcchips m810l mb with a 20gb primary hard drive 3gb secondary and lg dvdrom drive. My current operating system is win2k which is why i need to do a clean install from dvd as you cannot run setup from win2k.

First problem was "cannot boot from cd code 5" which i overcame by using "ultimateboot cd" which then allows win7 dvd to load. Now the problem is hang/stall. Win 7 sequence (all on black background) is "loading files" then "windows starting" with the 4 colours to make the flag then check of hard disk then nothing with large mouse icon in the middle of the screen. Cant move mouse and no keys work; left for an hour and no joy, just in case its slow.

I am running graphics through the vga adaptor and also have disabled floppy drive which i have seen as solutions to this elsewhere. Have unplugged all usb devices. Harddisk currently has win2k on it which i expect to reformat when i get that far. Do i need to format it primary disk so its empty first? Secondary disk has all my saved data on it to copy back later (also on flash drive; belt n braces.

Desktop Icons Flicker On Starting Ms Office Application

This is not a huge problem, it is just irritating, but i would like to know the answer to it if possible. I am running windows 7 home premium on a new pc and after running up my pc, the first time i start an ms office 2010 application the desktop icons flicker or turn white and then re-establish themselves in a second or two; working isn't affected and the shortcuts still work. This only happens the first time you start any one of the ms office 2010 applications; word; xl; powerpoint, or publisher.

Once any one of those applications has been run, for example word, it doesn't happen again when you start another ms office application, for example xl. This doesn't happen when i start any of my other installed software applications, only the ms office 2010 ones. I upgraded to 2010 from 2007 trial version which was pre-installed on the pc and don't recall it happening when i was running the earlier version, could it be something to do with having upgraded to 2010?

Computer Gets To "starting Windows" And Then Restarts Constantly

I just finished my first computer build. It was working fine, so i decided to take my graphics card and install it since everything else seemed good. I install it and the most recent drivers from ati. When i reboot, it gets to "starting windows" and then restarts. Safe mode still works. In my bios it says the gpu voltage is 0. 000, however the fan on the card is spinning. I've tried everything i could find on the web to no avail. Does anyone know what this mixture of symptoms could be caused by?

Office 2007 Programs Do Not Appear In Default Programs List

I have both and microsoft office 2007 installed on my windows 7 computer and i would like to use microsoft office as the default for all files it can open but it does not appear in the default programs list.

In fact, except for microsoft office outlook, none of my microsoft office 2007 applications appear in the default programs list! does appear, and when i click on it in the list and click choose defaults for this program many of the defaults are already set to the equivalent microsoft office application. But there are some associations (such as text files) that are not correctly associated, and possibly others that i don't know about. I'd like to click on microsoft word and then click set this program as default so that it will automatically open all the files it can.

Win 7 Startup

I'm running a dell e521 which started life with vista. I upgraded months ago to windows 7. The upgrade went quite smooth. This past week i was performing a system restore to a previous date when during the process the computer rebooted which is normal. I got the dell logo, then the windows 7 start-up screen with the four little revolving lights. Then the computer progressed to the black screen with the cursor in the center and froze at that screen. I have been unable to get past this screen since. I tried rebooting with the windows 7 repair disc but with no success.

I have since bought and installed a new hard-drive and was able to extract most but not all of my files from my external hard-drive. I would like to know if there is a solution to fixing my old drive so that i can retrieve all of my data and perhaps use it as a second drive in my computer. Note; when this problem hard-drive is connected i can't get past this black screen so i cannot access my computer to find a fix.

Unmute On Startup

I purchased my laptop with vista on it, with an upgrade to 7 home premium when it was released. I've since installed, but now the system automatically turns the sound on at startup. It never had a problem with vista, and i didn't mind that the very first time i booted into 7

This is particularly annoying when i'm in class and someone sends me a message and the whole class think's i'm talking away. I've had more dirty looks from instructors in the past few months than i can remember.

I know i can go through and disable all the sounds, and switch between sound schemes, but i would rather not bother going through that path 2-3 times a day. How do i get my sound settings to stay where i put them?

No Startup Folder

Recently, i put a program in the startup folder in

C:usersadminappdataroamingmicrosoftwindowsstart menuprogramsstartup

I later decided that i didn't want the program to startup every time i log on, but instead of deleting the program i accidentally deleted the startup folder instead. The folder is no longer in the recycling bin. Does anyone have any idea of how to replace my startup folder because i would really like to put some programs in there.

I've tried using task scheduler, but didn't find it to be very effective. What i really need is a new startup folder.

Freezes On Startup

I have a computer that is one day old and will not start up (windows 7 home premium 64 bit). It will freeze at "windows starting. " It will freeze under safe mode at the classpnp.sys file. I have attempted to boot from a recovery dvd and it will not not not boot from it and freeze, and the bios settings are set to boot from the optical drive 1st. It will freeze when i try to enter the repair console.

I am out of ideas as to what to do, and i can find no answers online.

The comlete story is as follows: i was installing various programs fine (office, symantec, turbotax 04-09, etc). After installing adobe photoshop, the os "freaked out. "  I have no other way to describe it. Various components of the screen starting flickering (not the entire screen, but certain parts of programs). The touchpad became unresponsive, jerky, and seemed to click on its own. The computer began a shutdown sequence - because updates had queued, those began installing once the os logged off. Upon power on, i made it to the welcome screen. Each time, the touchpad was unresponsive, and the keyboard seemed to have its own inputs, because it would freeze and lock me out of the system.

After a few cold shutdowns, the touchpad and keyboard stopped acting weird (i know this sounds crazy, but i swear its true), and i was able to log in. I created the recovery dvds using the vaio console, uninstalled photoshop, and did a system restore to before the photoshop installation. The computer shut down, but has never been able to completely boot into the windows welcome screen.

Startup Faliure

On june 23, 2010, my computer received an auto-update from microsoft. I believe that that my computer restarted once after the update, but since then, it fails to start up at all. The computer does not usually get as far as providing me with the repair screen options, but occasionally does. Those efforts were unsuccessful. I have even tried making the repair using the os software disc. However, that was not successful. Usually, i end up with a completely black screen. Dditionally, i tried to restore the computer to three prior periods, but each attempt has failed. I received the following information after the failed repair efforts:

Problem event name: startup repair offline problem signature 01: 6. 1. 7600. 16385 problem signature 02: 6. 1. 7600. 16385 problem signature 03: unknown problem signature 04: 21201010 problem signature 05: auto failure problem signature 06: 4 problem signature 07: bad patch os version: 6. 1. 7600. 2. 0. 0. 256. 1 local id: 1033

I'm guessing that i got dinged in the update that was downloaded. Regardless, i just want to get my computer back up and working. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Yes, i have disconnected all of the external devices and still have made no progress with this problem.

How To Get A Program Run On Startup?

Win 7 home premium i'd like to get a temperature utility program such as realtemp or core temp running on startup.core temp has a setting to have it run on startup, but it doesn't. (Neither of these are installed programs, but standalone .exe files that i run with a shortcut. )I've tried placing a short cut for either program into the startup folder but still have to start either one up manually. If i run system configuration, with either shortcut in the startup folder, it shows it being set for running on startup, but it doesn't run.

Taskbar Freeze At Startup

I had tried several times now, but the same happend. When i upgraded first time from xp to win 7 everything went ok until a few days later. Then started the taskbar to freeze, i could not click any items in the taskbar etc. Until i start the task manager by pressing #ctrl-alt-del" when i had dne that the task bar can be used again !I had tried to run 5-6 different virus scanners, i have avg installed, nothing from any of them, i thought in the beginning it could be a problem with the csrss.exe file as in the task-manger can i not see the properties, it not come up at all, also it not show who user ise the csrss.exe, my notebook does that !

I had re-installed the win 7 2 times again, and now it seems like the taskbar freeze at sratup, so when had had started the task-manager 1 time it works all ok ! That is quite strange !Any have a brilliant idea about what is wrong ! My computer is an acer stationary, 2 gb ram. Intel core duo e4500 2. 2 ghz. Windows / 32 bit.
