Look at the top of the page and you'll see a tab that says Start Up. Click on that and search away. If in doubt don't be afraid to ask. Don't use MSCONFIG, instead try Autoruns or Codestuff Starter

If you untick an entry in Autoruns or Starter, it will no longer run at startup. This will allow you to experiment and see how your system performs with any of them disabled. Note: some startup programs are necessary so be careful what you disable.

If you come across a suspicious file which you cannot find any information, the file has a legitimate name but is not located where it is supposed to be, or you want a second opinion, submit it to jotti's virusscan or virustotal.com. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.

I have Autoruns, but I think free WinPatrol is the most user-friendly startup control going: http://www.winpatrol.com/ Scotty will not offer to turn off anything necessary, and a 'disable' in the startup section does not remove it from the list. You can easily go back and 'enable' at any time. WinPatrol has many other benefits as well.

For what I have learned about controlling my processes, written in 'non-geek,' and including web addresses of useful tools and informational sites, see my Vox: http://doc1101.vox.com/

The 'links' are not 'live,' so copy and paste the URLs to your browser address bar, and "Go." No spyware, no ads, nothing to buy(or donate), just info.
