Follow these steps to disable unwanted programs from starting when Windows starts:

1. Click Start
2. Click Run
3. Type "msconfig" and click Ok
4. Select the Startup tab

Then just find the program you want to disable and make sure that it is unchecked, or if you want to enable it just checkmark it again.

Hope this helps,
Desion

@ Desion, msconfig was never designed to be a startup manger. It should only be used for testing purposes. Using a startup manger as suggested by Broni is the recommended method to permanently modify startup items.
