Actually I was trying to list only the logon programs when I told autoruns to save it, it saved everything.   What is an .ARN file?????????

An .ARN file is a binary file created by Autoruns (File->Save) that one can use to save and view a snapshot of the autostart locations.  I could load a .ARN file from your system into Autoruns, to conveniently inspect the autostarts on your system.

If it were my system, I'd start by disabling or at least further exploring the following (if possible; some software I'm not familiar with and may seem superfluous but may actually be required, so of course use your good judgment and knowledge of your system and the installed hardware and software.  Also, suggestions to disable / remove AV / security software, while perhaps "extreme", are based off of past experiences with that type of software; should you choose to heed the suggestion, please consider what it is you are doing, and why you had the software in the first place - disconnect from any network / the Internet before uninstalling that type of software as of course you will not be protected while the software is not installed and running).

I know the list is huge, but a lot of the stuff simply is not "necessary" for Windows to function, and could be interfering or conflicting with Windows or other software, and causing the problem.  So, the suggestion is the ensure you have a verified backup, and then make small changes, trying to isolate or identify which software may be contributing to the behavior.  Try to reproduce the problem; if you can reproduce it, make some more changes and try again.  If not, software in the set of items that was most recently manipulated would seem to be suspect and should be further investigated. 


Any verdict on whether CTRL+SHIFT+ESC or ALT+TAB continue to function?
