    You mean the "Getting Started" section?
    Try doing this:
    run msconfig (start menu>>"msconfig), startup tab, there is an entry for a Microsoft Windows Operating System entry with a command that ends "ShowWelcomeCenter LaunchedBy_StartMenuShortcut" Remove its preceding check mark.

    Hope this solves your problem!
