So far, so good. At this point I'm only sorry I wasn't keeping track of which web sites displayed that banner. But now that I grok Autoruns, which is like a MSExec (not sure if that's the old name) or Win 10's Task Manager, on steroids, I get it. Thanks, Evan, for that neat tool! Now, I can start adding things back a,d as I add each one back and reboot, watch for that banner to reappear. Then I will know which one is the culprit. And yes, it is marginally faster. While I know my system isn't a gamer's rocket, it is fast, so the difference was not startling. I understand why they call you Terminator! -a.
