Strange thing on startup in Windows 7

Recommended Posts

Some item shoots from middle of screen towards start button after start in windows 7. I don't seem to have any problems but it's weird since it just started about a month or two ago. Anybody have an idea what it is and maybe how to get rid of it?

Sounds like a program is starting with windows and automatically minimizing. It could be anything really, hard to say what program(s) do that. It is pretty common. You could try and see what is starting with windows and disable things one at a time.

You might try a search on your C Drive for "startup". There are several "startup" folders. Look in each one for any programs you have not installed. Particularly in your "Users" folder under AppData.
