I try unchecking the checkbox at the bottom of the welcome center, but upon logout/reboot, the stupid welcome center comes back. Usually this works...
I've also tried editing/removing the reg entry..
1. HKEY_CURRENT_USER, Software, Microsoft, Windows, CurrentVersion, Run. Right clicked on WindowsWelcomeCenter and deleted. This key was recreated upon second reboot.
2. HKEY_CURRENT_USER, Software, Microsoft, Windows, CurrentVersion, Run. Right clicked on WindowsWelcomeCenter and changed the path to a - (hyphen). This key was recreated upon second reboot, with the path filled in again as if I never edited it.
I've also tried deleting the profile (and files) reboot, recreate profile, unchecking the box, the stupid thing still comes back.
it's weird because on the same machine/install it worked ok for a while, but then i had to blow away a profile and recreate it because i corrupted it, and then the problem showed up and wouldn't go away.
any ideas? Thanks.
oh vista home premium, so no gpedit (or the other msc, can't remember which one right now ), and doesn't show up in msconfig (on the user profile).
It works fine for the primary user account..
