Hi Guys,

I've removed just about everything from my start up menu to speed up the boot up process and also because there's too many programs starting up that i dont need to use every single time i boot up my laptop.
I prefer to launch a program if and when i need it.

Two programs in particular keep adding themselves to the list.

Quick Time and Yahoo Messenger

I've removed them by running msconfig, and also by using the start up menu editor from Tune Up Utilities.

Everytime i remove them though, they re appear ....

Any idea how i can stop this permenantly ???

Cheers !
If there really was a god, then why is my ass the perfect height for kicking ???

Go into the program's Options menu, and disable them from running at start-up.
