Hello,

How do you change the list of programmes that start-up automatically
when windows boots up?

Thanks

Hektor

One easy way to do this is to use MSCONFIG (select RUN from main start menus, type in MSCONFIG).
Select the Startup Tab. Review the startup application programs. Take care that you do not turn off your antivirus program.

Here are 2 tools from SysInternals that may help you get an insight on what's running.
Autoruns (checks & shows what's set to auto-load at Windows startup)

Process Explorer http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/procexp.shtml
