    Cliffs: Need Help stopping some things from starting and other things to start.

    Well the problem is this, whenever my computer starts up there are certin programs that i dont want to start up automaticly (Quicktime, Limewire), And then there are other programs (Trillian, Rainmeter) That i DO want to start up at the begining.

    The problem is whenever i go into msconfig and change the settings to stop quicktime from starting it seems to put it self back on the list. And i dont know if there is some kind of a program that will let me start up any program at the start up cause im pretty sure Rainmeter doesnt have an auto start feature.

    Any Help Would Be Great.

    Quicktime: Go through the preferences the the program and uncheck the box that makes it start up with Windows.

    BE VERY CAREFUL

    Start -> Run -> Regedit

    HKEY Local Machine -> Software -> Microsoft -> Windows -> CurrentVersion -> Run

    Delete keys in the right hand pane.

    Start --> Run --> Msconfig --> Startup

    Untick the boxes of programs/services you dont want running on startup

    msconfig should work. I've never had any problems.

    If not, you'll need to go into the programs themselves to have them not load on startup.

    Uh, no. That makes about as much sense as asking him to run Hijack This.

    Msconfig will at least you check the path, file name and click to add it back.
