    Post re: controlling start up programs

    Could some on tell me the command or process I have to use so that I can stop programs starting during bootup time?

    I did this once before from start/run/'command'.
    I have now forgotten the command.

    Note I am not refering to C:\Windows\Start Menue folders,
    or Start/settings/Taskbar and Settings

    I did try typing:
    "Start up"
    "Start menu"
    on the windows help tools but this did not give me the information.

    Goto start/run ( or hit your windows key +r) type " msconfig; look at your startup tab and uncheck anything in there you don't want to run.

    For a permanent fix goto these registry keys and delete the values you see in the right pane ( make a backup of these keys, or your entire registry first ):
    • HK-local machine/software/microsoft/windows/current version/run,
    • run once,
    • run services
