I remember that happening at times when I had Win XP. But not near as many times as it does with Win 7. As long as it is not some sort of Virus or a hacker I am probably not that concerned, just will have to keep closing it. lol
Why can't Windows put out a product without problems??? lolol
Its an XP forum - but youll see two of the posts are from diff Win7 users, one with the a barnd new laptop.
The obvious solution (as also suggested in the thread) is that it must be a shortcut issue - you say this happens during idle also - so a program must be requesting it.
Look through your task manager and see what programs are running in the background and in your startup folder - disable all that ar enot necessary - this will hekp w/ system performance an dif your lucky you will also find teh offending program.
Its prob not a win7 error, its probably an annoting bloatware program that came installed or an adware program you picked up inadvertently
OK, thanks. I will look at that. Although...not being a computer Tech/Geek...I really am not sure to to look for to disable. I saw the comments with Win 7 on Dell. And since I am one of those unfortunate ones with a Dell I am wondering if that may be a cause also.
