I just recently purchased a Dell laptop, and right out of the box Control Panel opens up on startup everytime.

I've emptied out the Startup folder under the Start Menu.

Here is what appears under HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run:

There is nothing located under:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServicesOnce
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx


Thank you for any assistance!

Nevermind...one of these processes were the cause. Didn't think it'd be that easy of a fix...took more time to take a screenshot than diagnose the problem LOL. Please delete this thread.

Nope, just disabled about half to narrow it down. Then went ahead and started re-enabling them one at a time until I found the culprit.

So What process was the troublemaker.

I have the same problem and would like to avoid the discovery process.

Please start your own topic
Although your issue may seem similar there can be other factors that may need to be resolved.
By bumping on someone's topic it makes it confusing for the tech to understand who they are helping. This can in turn cause the wrong support to be given and can cause instability or worse to happen to your system.
