Hi--not sure how to apply your solution? What are the steps to do this registry change???

thanks--sorry, not too technical, I opened regedit and went to key but not sure what to do from there.

 

 

  1. On your desktop, create a new text file called "stopTheDing.reg" (make sure you can see file extensions).
  2. Right click it and choose Edit, so you get a blank document open in Notepad.
  3. Copy the bold text below:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\CCSelect]
@=""

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\CCSelect\.current]
@=""

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\CCSelect\.Default]
@=""

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\CCSelect\.Modified]
@=""

 

  1. Paste it into the Notepad document so "Windows Registry Edi..." is on the top line
  2. Save the file and close notepad
  3. Double-click the reg file and confirm you want to apply it
  4. Voila
