My boyfriends computer wouldn't start up so we had a tech (friend) look at it. He did somethings to the computer including replacing the video card.

Now all of the programs are in the start up menu and starting when the computer starts up, but thats not the problem. I had gone into the start up menu and unchecked all those I don't want to start up and also went into some of the programs themselves and set them up so they did NOT start up when computer was turned on.

Everytime the computer is turned on all those programs still start up and the tool bar at the bottom is loaded with program icons.

Why do the programs keep going back to the default settings and how can i fix this.

Thank you in advance for your help

Did you go into the startup folder: start/all programs/startup and remove programs or did you go into msconfig: start/run/type msconfig and hit enter, go to the startup tab and uncheck programs you did not want to start?

yes I went into the run msconfig startup menu and unchecked the programs. I also went into most of the programs in their settings and configured them not to start up at the start.

try turning them off in the main services page, hit start, control panel , admin tools then services, scroll down the list and either make it manual or stopped. You have to right click on every service to set it that way but they wont come back!! Its the way your suppposed to do it instead of using MSCONFIG

Gilmour,

I went to the folder as you instructed and there is no option to turn any of these programs off. There is only a "start" option. No matter what menu I looked in there was no option to turn them off, even if I right clicked on them all I got was

START

(items below were grayed out)

stop
pause
resume
restart


Then

All Tasks > Start

(items below were grayed out)
stop
pause
resume
restart

then


refresh
properties ( I saw nothing in properties that would allow me to disable anything, except maybe "service" says "stopped" and below that has "start" then grayed out are "stop" "pause" and "resume")
help


There is also a start up type option in properties for each item that has "automatic" "disabled" or "manual"

Does any of this look like I'm in the right place?
