Published on 08/20/2006
This new welcome screen is a nice feature the first time you start using Windows vista but quickly becomes annoying. 

Disable Welcome Center

1. Start Regedit.

2. Navigate through HKEY_CURRENT_USER, Software, Microsoft, Windows, CurrentVersion, Run.

3. Right click on the WindowsWelcomeCenter key and select Delete.

The next time you restart the Welcome Center will be gone.
