    I upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 last night and ended up with two control panel icons on my task bar. I called Microsoft and worked with them for 2 1/2 to three hours and I still have the icons and now my machine takes for ever to shut down and everytime it reboots I get and error that it didn't shut down properly and asks me to send the error message to Microsoft.

    I have a duel core Pentium E5200 (2.5 GHZ) HP machine with 4 GIG of memory.

    Any suggestions? :(

    Well, sounds like you have some holdovers from Vista. Have you tried opening an Administrative Command Prompt and using the "SFC /scannow" command (without the quotes). Maybe it will find some system files that need to be fixed.

    You have done a complete shutdown and reboot?
