Used program title appearing in Start

After closing my programs, I find that the same program name appears under the Bold entries, under the first column of the Start box.
I find that I have to 'Remove from list' each one, which is a nuisance.
Anyone know how to prevent this?

Name of prrogramme should appear in control panel / programmes and feautures (or add remove programmes if XP)

If not, go to start / run (a dialog box will appear) type msconfig

Press enter

Go to the tab marked startup

Find the relevant entry and untick the box to which it relates.

Take care in there, as making other changes can cause problems.

Why bother to remove them? It is a normal part of Windows operation.

Right click task bar, Properties>Start Menu tab>Customize and set number of programs to zero.
