I just did a clean Windows 7 install on my new Agility SSD. After getting most everything where I wanted it, I'm now getting a blank rectangular InstallShield box on my desktop at startup. I can "X" out of it, but it's annoying. Any ideas on how to get rid of it? Thanks!

I also noticed that the "services" are totally different on 7 from XP.
Windows 7 Pro, i7- 920, Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R, 6 Gb DDR3, 120 gb Agility 3 SSD, 500 Gb WD drive, OCZ Mod X Stream- Pro 700 watt psu, Corsair H50 cooler with 2 Silenx low rpm fans, 9800 GT video card, 2- 140mm case fans

Download Autoruns for Windows: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx

No installation required.

Simply unzip Autoruns.zip file, and double click on autoruns.exe file to run the program.

Go File>Save, and save it as AutoRuns.txt file to know location.

You must select Text from drop-down menu as a file type:
