How to get rid of that pesky Windows Welcome Center at FIRST boot

January 21st, 2007 by Patrick Elliott
If you’re like me, you have custom scripts you run after you install Windows to get everything “just right”.
You may have noticed, you don’t see a checkbox to “Show Windows Welcome Center” until you’ve logged on twice, and that’s by design.
With a simple .reg file though, you can kill Windows Welcome Center dead on first boot — simply put the following into your .reg file and save it, run it, or add it to your scripts:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"WindowsWelcomeCenter"=-
  

And like magic, it will not bother you again 🙂
