Why is my start pane showing double entries? Moreover how do I train it to keep things simple.

I imagine there is something in the registry that got scrambled but what?

You can see the problem in the picture below. The stuff in the crudely drawn red circle is redundant. When I reboot it is initially Ok and then replicates.

Hmm..

Do you use these programs before they clone themselves somehow?

Maybe that's a possibility that I use one or other. I'd have to experiment a little.

runbox command
- press keyboard buttons: winkey + r
- paste this in slot: %userprofile%\start menu\programs
- press: enter
- see if there are double entries there
(perhaps deleting the doubles entries might help)
(the winkey is the button with microsoft flag on it)
