Stopping the Starting

Are you having a tough time figuring out how to get some programs from automatically opening every time Windows starts? Then this tip is for you.

If you are using Windows 98, then the method is easier than with Windows 95:

1. Click on Start
2. Click on Programs
3. Click on Accessories
4. Click on System Tools
5. Click on System Information
6. Click on the Tools menu
7. Click on System Configuration Utility
8. Click on the Startup tab
9. Now simply scroll through the list of programs that are automatically starting, and uncheck the box next to them.
10. Click OK twice and restart your computer, that?s it!

If you are using Windows 95, try this:

1. Click on Start
2. Click on Settings
3. Click on Taskbar and Start menu
4. Click on the Start Menu Programs tab at the top of the screen
5. Click on the Remove button
6. Scroll through the list and click on the plus sign next to the Startup folder
7. Click on the program that you don?t want to start and then click on the Remove button
8. Repeat the last step for all the programs you want to prevent from automatically starting
9. Click on close
10. Click on OK

The Windows 95 tip will work for Windows 98, but if you have Windows 98, that methodology is more reliable.
