Howdy,

I just checked my computer to see what was running at startup.

I noticed a program called KernelFaultCheck was running. I have know idea what this is or how it got into my startup programs.

My computer has been very slow at startup lately. Could this be part of the problem ?


Here is a screen shot.

Click on the Settings button in 'Startup and Recovery'. In the bottom pane - under 'Write debugging information' - click on the down arrow and then select 'None' - OK your way out"
