Alan,

Thank you very much. I appreciate your time on my software issues. Confounding at times...

Sometimes I hate that I am old...

I just re-read what you wrote. You're saying SH opens every time you boot the computer without clicking on the icon.

Go to this hidden folder: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Remove any sleepyhead shortcuts there. If you don't see it there, try this location:

Windowskey+R and type in
Code:
shell:startup

(had to put that in a code block or I would have a smiley there :\)


If you don't see anything there, two more places you can check.

Windowskey+R and type in TASKMGR
Click over to the Startup tab and see if SH is in there. Right-click disable

or if you are comfortable with the registry:
Windowskey+R and type in REGEDIT

Navigate to: Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
Also check : Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

If you find it there, just delete the SH entry on the right side

Check the key below it too: RunOnce

If you're not seeing it in any of those places I have a few more to check.

I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses. Big Grinnie

Alan,

The following solved the problem nicely. Thank you for following up when you realized my question was different than what you initially answered. I really appreciated the ideas to try.

Hopefully this thread will help others with these kinds of issues.
