Hi! Just wanted my first post to be one that says Hello and I am sooo glad I found your site.

I am a fairly new PC user on a Windows XP. I started my morning on a hunt to figure out how programs are started in Windows. More specifically how to remove those programs which are unnecessary and added themselves to my startup routine?

I found this site while on the Microsoft site and checking out User groups, any group that named itself "Bleeping Computer" was right up my alley. I Loved it and hoped I could find friendly people and some information on the hundreds ( slight exageration ) of questions I have about this Bleeping machine.

Well that's me, I'm a tad bit Wacko this afternoon having spent the moring searching help and support and Microsoft support to no avail.. :thumbsup:

Welcome to BC!

If you have Spybot Search and Destroy on your computer as a part of a defence against spyware, you can use its startup tool to review and manage the programs that launch when you boot your computer. Information on whether such programmmes are needed, optional, or unneed can be found in BC's Startup Program database.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
