MultiTerm Widget causing problems

Hi all,

I purchased Trados Studio 2009 last week and installed everything provided. I then had problems shutting down my computer and subsequently problems starting it up. It also ran very slowly. After several days in the computer repair shop it emerges that the MultiTerm Widget was affecting the hard drive controller in Windows. Has anyone experienced anything similar? I would have thought software as expensive as that issued by SDL would be a bit... erm... better.

Remove SDL Trados 2007 from Autostart Oct 4, 2011

and do the same with MultiTerm Widget if you do not need it.
This will prevent the computer from starting a quick-start item for Synergy you really do not need when working with Studio and in case of Widget also reveal the problem of a corupt XML settings file, which happen from time to time.
