Until the world moves over to Linux, here's how to remove programs that keep starting up when you start Windows. Remove the following registry entries:-
Launches a program automatically when a particular user logs in. This key is used when you always want to launch a program when a particular user is using a system.
Launches a program the next time the user logs in and removes its value entry from the registry. This key is typically used by installation programs.
Launches a program automatically at system startup. This key is used when you always want to launch a program on a particular system.
Launches a program the next time the system starts and removes its value entry from the registry. This key is typically used by installation programs.
Launches a service (a standard NT service or a background process) automatically at startup. An example of a service is a Web server such as Microsoft Internet Information Server.
