New to the forums.

I have a Linx 810.

I have a problem trying to add a program to start up when the computer boots.

I f I place a program shortcut in the relevant folder- either the 'signed on user' -
ie: user\appdata\roaming\microsoft\windows\start menu\programs\startup,

or ' all users' ie program data\microsoft\windows\start menu\programs\startup.

- it will not start, even if I try a variety of programs.

however, if I simply place a text document in the start up folder - it works!

I have done a clean install of the recovery image several times to make sure I have no rogue software or such, but the result is the same?

Any ideas anyone?

FYI, I have also tried to create a 'basic task' in task scheduler, and it still wont run at start up?

confused :evil:
