Disabling Automatic Startup Programs
If you don’t want certain programs or applications to run automatically on startup,

there’s an easy way to disable them.

  • Click Start
  • Type msconfig in the search box
  • Click Continue in the User Account Control to continue
  • Click on the Startup Tab
  • Uncheck any boxes in the “Startup Items” that you wish to disable or
  • click the Disable All button (not recommended)
  • Click OK

If you need to re-enable any of the programs, go through the same process and

check the boxes of programs you wish to run automatically on startup.
