I usually get an error message at shutdown that igfxpers.exe is not responding.
I have read that this program is not essential, but am unsure how to safely disable it.
I'm running windows XP home on a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi spmeyers,

I've removed the advice in this thread to use HijackThis to disable that startup. It will do it, but will delete the entry from the registry and that can't be easily reversed so it is not advisable to use HJT as a startup manager if you are just going to disable a startup here and there.

Most people use msconfig to do this, which is OK, but it is meant to be used temporarily for troubleshooting purposes. I prefer third party startup managers. So see our tutorial for some info on how to disable your startup this way:

How To Use The Startup Database

There are plenty of other startup managers out there besides AutoRuns--myself, I prefer Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel.

Let us know what happens.
