Disable “Auto” Start programs easily

You can disable the automatic startup programs very easily with "MSConfig.exe" program which is available in Windows XP and Vista machines.

1. Click Start (Orb) button and type "MSConfig". Select "Msconfig.exe" file from the start menu results.

2. Go to Start-up tab and disable the programs you don’t need.


Remember it will ask you to restart your computer right-away. You may choose to restart later (if so, click No). After you reboot, the MSConfig program will pop up and notify about the disabled programs.


Being in Silicon Valley for years, I became a IT Infrastructure Geek by experience and surrounded by other Geeks everywhere. I try to help others by the solutions I found on odd occasions.
