    Question Fast window appearance upon Win7 boot

    When I boot my Windows 7 OS, there is a momentary opening & closing of two windows after the desktop appears. They happen so fast that I'm not able too see what they are. I set Process Monitor to run at start up to try to determine what the problem is, but I don't know how to interpret the results. I tried a safe boot & the windows do not appear.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Use Autoruns (Logon tab) or WhatInStartup to see and manage what it start when you boot the PC.

    I found one of the items causing the problem. I recently installed BetterExplorer & for whatever reason it causes a window to rapidly open & close. I used Autoruns to disable it as a test. I don't know what message it conveys, but, at least, I know what's doing it.

    I don't know what PasteCopy.NET is, but whatever it is it doesn't appear in the results using ProcessMonitor or Autoruns.
