It's a completely normal shortcut with no spaces in the file name.  The path the the exe is:

"C:\Program Files\Sun\VirtualBox\VirtualBox.exe"

It was originally installed in:

"C:\Program Files\Sun\xVM VirtualBox\VirtualBox.exe"

I thought the "\xVM" might be causing a problem as \x is a hex character code escape sequence in Python (and perhaps other languages), but reinstalling in a different directory didn't help.

I've been using FARR with Windows 7 x64(both beta and RC) and have noticed that while for the most part it works just fine, there are certain very rare programs that it can't seem to launch.  The only example that I can provide at the moment (because it's the only one that I use enough to remember) is VirtualBox.  I have no idea why, but when I try to launch the VirtualBox Manager using FARR, either nothing happens (if the "Launch Method" is set to "Method 1 - ShellExecute") or Windows tells me that the path to the .lnk file does not exist (if the "Launch Method" is set to "Method 2 - ShellExcuteEx" [SIC]).  Both the path to the shortcut and the executable exist and the shortcut launches just fine using Explorer.  I can't figure out what is different about this program.  I've tried compatibility modes, security settings, etc.  Seems to be something with the path, but I can't figure it out.  Has anyone else seen anything like this?

jazper,  Did you use AHK to create that?  If so, would you mind posting the AHK script code?

Does anyone know if it is possible to not only hide the start button, but remove the space as well (like StartKiller does)?

Also, does anyone know if that works on Vista?

I would love to have the ability to set process tamer rules based on the full startup command line, not just the exe (or at least the exe and all flags that follow it).  This would allow rules for specific instances of programs (e.g. svchost.exe).

That would be great.  I figured out how to control and modify how svchost groups different services into different process threads each with a different command line, e.g. - C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k NetworkService.  Not too hard to do with a little registry editing.  If I could set process tamer to look for a specific command line with parameters instead of just the exe, it would be a perfect solution to my problem.

Happy to be an alpha tester :D
