:thumbsup: I currently have Norton Antivirus and BitDefender 8 Free Edition installed on my system. It is my understanding that two antivirus programs resident in memory would, among other things, at the very least slow down a computer system. So I need to know how to completely disable BitDefender and all it's associated files from loading in memory at boot up. I still want to have it on my hard disk, but as a back up only to be ran about once a month. I'm not having any problems with my CPU usage, it's running at 1% to 5%. But I still would like to disable BitDefender from loading in memory at startup.

My System specs are as follows:
Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 (build 2600)
1.53 gigahertz AMD Athlon XP
Board: ECS L7VMM3 3.1
Hard drive 80.00 GB
1024 MB RAM

First of all - please use the default font and color when you post here.
Making your post difficult to read will tend to make most people bypass your post in favor of one that is easy to read.

To disable your startup entries I recommend that you download Startup Inspector, freeware at the following URL:

http://www.windowsstartup.com/download.php

It is easier to use than the Windows utility - msconfig - and it tells you what ap the startup entry is for, which msconfig does not.

The second ap on that page, Startup Monitor, will prevent programs from being loaded into your startup menu without your approval.
