If you're talking about programs that start automatically then
you may be thinking of msconfig. If that's the case, go to
Start -> Run and enter msconfig in the Open box. Click OK.
Click on the Startup tab. The programs listed with a check mark
next to them are automatically launched when your computer
starts. Removing the check mark will disable that feature.
