Which O/S are you using?

Go to Start, Run and type msconfig in the dialog box, press Enter. Hit the Startup tab and you will find a list of programs which run on Startup. Untick the box next to those programs which you no longer want.

Go to Start > RUN > Type: MSCONFIG > Startup > Take the ticks out of the little boxes...

If your not sure what it is click here

Any strange behaviour... Just add the ticks back then remove them one by one.

If a program still starts go into that program and there should be option to "Run when windows start" or something similar. Uncheck it...
