Stop Programs From Loading At StartUp

Programs that automatically launch when you boot your computer can be a convenience, but more often than not they are a nuisance. There are numerous ways to prevent a program from launching each time you boot your computer. You can use the Microsoft Configuration Utility (msconfig) and uncheck these programs, you can remove their shortcuts from the startup folder in the Start menu, and you can sometimes even configure startup preferences from directly within the program.

This tutorial will focus on editing the registry to prevent programs from loading when you boot your computer.
