    I have a simple little app "iconoid" https://www.sillysot.com/download.htm which stopped installing at startup.
    All it does is, after 7 seconds ± all the desktop icons dissapear, then after another 7 ± seconds the curser dissapears. Only mouse movement brings back the icons/curser.
    Silly yes! but I have some nifty wallpapers which look neater w/o icons or curser to distract from them.

    I didnt change anything on the (not this) computer. The fixes offered by them dont work.

    Is there a way to change the order in booting progs when Windows is starting??

    did you read all the history above about this program?

    not sure why you need it, if you have a lot of icons, make a new folder and drag/drop all your icons into it to clear your desktop, :)

    Ha Ha! I dont need it, I just like it! I have never needed a computer, they have allus just been toys. I think the term is 'arrested developement'. I'm 72 & still have not grown up, thats all! Money-wise, the only thing I do online is buy mainly Amazon. I have a seperate credit card account which I must transfer $$ before making purchases. "They cant steal whats not there"
