FIXED (Thanks, Queen-Evie)
About one week ago (i.e., late April 2014), Windows speech recognition began loading every time Windows boots up. I did not turn this feature on and I would like to turn it back off. However, I can't find where it is loading.
An Internet search for the topic reveals lots of similar questions from two – four years ago, all with the same basic answer of looking at the advanced options from the control panel or the tray icon and deselecting the "run on startup" option. In my case, however, this option is already deselected.
I ran AUTORUNS but I didn't see any likely prospects for running the speech recognition package.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what I could try to disable loading "Windows Speech Recognition" at startup? Any help appreciated.
