I am the administrator and I have signed in as administrator but still get error message. What can I do to effect the changes i want to make on start up thanks

Not sure but if using W/7 type msconfig into start box and when it appears right click it and click run as administrator.

Not sure if that will help or not.

You may find it easier to turn these programmes off using Tools Startup in CCleaner. If this is not a prog you already have, it's a free download.

Blue toolbox down the LHS between Options and Registry. Click that then Startup.
