Hi, i have an acer laptop, just wondering how to disable that annoying little widget in the corner of the screen, it always comes back after a restart...

Cheers.

You most likely find that it's a Custom BIOS and it will not let you remove it, You can check in BIOS as you can on some disable LOGO's from starting

Ive done it before tho, i cant remember how, it was very easy i know that.

All i did was stop it from appearing, but it was still in the taskbar which is fine.

Not being an ower of an Acer laptop, I don't know what the 'widget' is or looks like, but have you checked Msconfig to see if there is an entry in there corresponding to it?

Thanks for the reply MAJ.

I just checked and it seems very difficult to determine which one exactly is the widget...

I know there is an easier way of doing this, i hope someone with an acer comes along soon :)
