I have installed some new software that came with my
new camcorder and digital camera.
Now when ever I start up my computer these programs
open up in the little box in the lower right hand corner.

I then go in and right click on them and close them out
so they are not running. Is there a way that I can stop
them from opening up in the first place.

Check the programs options.
There should be some way to stop them from running at startup.

Hi pink panther

Another way to stop them from running when you boot is to go to Start>Run and type in msconfig. Look under the Startup tab in the box that pops up and uncheck these programs. There may be others you wish to disable. You can search these startup programs in our Startup Programs Database (see the top of this page) to see if they are needed or not.
