no need for capitals ADAMSKI30, hard to read and it appears you are shouting, pending what prog it is, in tools,options you should finf the option to not run at startup.

Please use lower case otherwise folk will think you're shouting.

Go to Start/Programs/Run and type in msconfig and press enter. Then press the startup tab on the right - select those items you want at start up.

Start\Run and type msconfig and hit return. Click the startup tab and untick the program you want to stop.

If its not in there its a bit more complicated. Best to install this click here which will probably find it.

OK try this ,Start,run, type in "msconfig" (no quotes" click on the tab at the top "Start up" scroll down and look for the entry that is causing the problem and disable it,then click apply/ok you will then get a box up to tell you that said box will appear after booting to desktop just click don't remind me again then ok,then reboot...

Many programs which load at startup can be selected by running msconfig. Select "Selective startup" then select/deselect the program from the list under the startup tab.

You should also check, Start button\Programs\Startup to remove right click and delete. They are only shortcuts, youwill not be deleting programs. ASs in MSCONFIG you will only stop them starting at boot
