How do I remove unwanted items from automatic start up menu


This question was answered on November 25, 2007. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

There are several ways of doing this, the first one is to click start all programs and go to the start up tab and remove any unwanted entries.

You can also go to start run and type in msconfig and go to the start up tab and un-check any entries you don't want.

The last option is to install software that will help you remove unwanted startup items, I usually choose Spybot Search and Destroy.
