PC starts to modern interface then goes to desktop?

  1. #11


    I like Bing desktop. I noticed that it used to kick the system to the desktop when it was first introduced to 8. After a few weeks I noticed it ceased. My thoughts were that they fixed it so as not to do so.

    Perhaps even after you uninstalled it, it left a unwanted setting in the registry? Search for the word "Bing" in Regedit. It may show it. Be careful when in the registry, though.

    hmm will look into it oh i use google chrome and yes it has the modern interface look. I don't understand why it is doing this but it really is bugging me.

    On second thought, I don't think it's Bing desktop for I know they fixed that, however it is a start up desktop program. There's got to be another desktop program opening. That's the only reason why the desktop would open.

    Reboot and let it finish. Open Task Manager to see if there's any desktop or Win32 programs running. That's the only thing I can think of.

    Any program that starts up that is not a modern app will most likely cause windows to switch to the desktop while it's loading. This is particularly true if the app displays a splash screen of some type. You say you are loading some apps at startup, and that is most likely the case.. Try disabling them from startup (use TaskManager, go to the Startup Tab, select these items and click the Disable button)

    Maybe his BING was an original version? I know they have updated it several times in the last few months. See if you an get the newest version then. I never use cack like that so I never allow it go get into my system
