StartUp Programs

Wed Jan 21, 2004 6:57 pm

My sister installed several programs that will pop up upon startup which has been very annoying as far, as the computer tends to lag during startup and the programs will continue to slow it down even more. How can I stop the program from starting itself?

Which operating system are you using?

Ok,

First of all, in your start menu, in the programs submenu there is a folder called 'startup' - delete anything in there that shouldn't be there.

Then select 'run' from the Start menu and type 'msconfig' and hit return, In the dialog that pops up there is an option to delete any startup entries which load through the registry.

I don't have a machine with Win98 installed at the moment to confirm for sure but that should be the easiest way to get rid of them.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Gordon.
