This is a heads up that the poster has a thread for the same issue at another site in order to avoid duplication of efforts.

Thanks for understanding.

If you don't receive any responses at the other site by the time someone here gets to your post, then someone here will help.

Check the Startup Tab in Task Manager and/or MSCONFIG and see if there is an entry for slmgr and disable it

There are two other places the file could be "hiding", that I can think of offhand.

Hold down the Windows & R buttons to bring up the Run dialogue box. Within this box, copy & paste the following and then hit OK...

shell:startup

If there's nothing in there, repeat the process for calling up the dialogue box and then copy & paste the following before hitting OK...

shell:common startup

Just to let you know I did a clean install of Win 11. Problem gone. I was on the dev build and it was just too buggy . Thanks for your help.
