Hi,

This may sound like a very silly question to you computer experts out there
but I cannot stop a programme from starting automaticly on start up of my pc.
I have checked the startup menu in all programmes and documents and settings
but cannot get it to stop.

Can someone please help me with this before I lose it all together?
:)

Hi,

Go to Start and then Run and type the following: "msconfig". (without the
quotation marks)
You're presented with a window which present you 6 tabs.
Select the Start Up tab and here you're given almost all of the programs
that are run when your logging in to your system.

Most of them are required by the system to work correctly, others are
optional.

Hello,

You can try looking in Start > Run > msconfig > OK

And/Or in Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services

And/Or use Autoruns to help you
