    Programs that launch at start up (Win XP Pro)

    Hi,
    I can't seem to be able to remove some program from start up. It seems to me that this used to be quite simple but the Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 314488 gave me huge long procedure to modify the "Startup Policy" and when I followed it, it never let me remove programs. Help please.

    It seems the first place to try would be Start, Run, MSCONFIG and check the Startup tab. If it's not a "normal" or expected program, even though not wanted, then one might have to look for spyware, if you're not already doing so. <!post=See this thread.,296439>See this thread.<!/post>
