    I set up a ventrilo server one day and it's automatically loaded itself to start whenever the computer turns on. I want to get rid of it now and can't figure out how to :noes:


    when I search for the file "ventrilo_srv.exe" it brings up 2 results.

    One is located in "C:\Program Files\ventsrv\" and the other is located under

    "ventrilo_srv-2.2.0-Windows-i386"

    START > RUN > type in msconfig > select the STARTUP tab on top and disable it from there.

    you can disable the process if you are admin

    Right-Click Start > Explore > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services

    Find the service and permently Disable and "Stop" it.

    Don't Disable processes using MSCONFIG, that can screw things up. But you can stop startup processes with MSCONFIG like someone else stated. There's a difference between the two.
