To turn off programs that are starting when your computer stats, you go to START --> RUN and type in: msconfig You then click on the STARTUP tab and uncheck the boxes that you don't want to start up when Windows loads.

I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO NOT DISABLE ANY OF THESE ITEMS UNLESS YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING! POST THE ITEMS IN THIS TOPIC AND LET THE PROFESSIONALS LET YOU KNOW WHAT SHOULD AND SHOULDN'T BE RUNNING WHEN WINDOWS STARTS UP.

Hi

If you have Microsoft Antispyware Beta 1 installed you can manage your startup programs through that, MSCONFIG is okay as well, however if you disable then the startup process becomes a selective startup and will prompt for a change each time you boot the PC.

Another useful tool for editing startups is Startups
