The thing you do is to start the computer and then look in the system tray. If you see a lot of icon things in there, then it may be the time to change what launches at startup.Typically you will be able to find a way to disable the program from automatically starting with Windows.

The next option is :

  • Click the Start Button for windows xp or windows logo button for windows 7 and vista
  • Select ‘Run’ for windows xp or search for windows 7 and vista
  • In the box type ‘msconfig’ without the quotes
  • Click OK or hit the enter key in your keyboard
