If there are any other ports listed when Geronimo starts up then you 
should also change those ports otherwise you will get errors/exceptions 
at startup when another instance of geronimo attempts to use them.

How did the Geronimo Administrative console get added to the start 
menu?  How did you install geronimo?

Try this..

Drag the icon on the left of the URL in the address bar in your browser 
( whilst browsing http://localhost:8088/console ) to your start menu and 
then when the start menu pops up move the mouse to the location on the 
menu where you want to place the shortcut to the web page and then 
release the mouse button to drop the shortcut to the web page.
