Hi snowmobile74,

   I assume you have removed EVERYTHING from the Start Up menu in Programs?

All the places to check:

1) Your user profile StartUp folder
2) All users Startup folder
3) win.ini (for run= and load= lines)
4) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
5) HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Great... so you'll only accept an answer that requires you purchasing a 3rd party product or that doesn't exist.

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

And Microsoft SHOULD follow internet standards instead of trying to force people to use their version of a standard which doesn't even follow the standards (remember the JAVA thing about a year ago?).  But they don't.   Look at every EXE in Windows - NO PROGRAM EXISTS THAT IS BUNDLED WITH THE OPERATING SYSTEM.

ok, this should work

just found out yesterday how to do this, I was having the same problem as you and finally found the answer.  

hope it helps, but sorry to tell you there are 2 folders to look in, not just one, so if you don't wanna give me the points that's fine.   :) I just hope it helps.

1. On desktop double click my computer
2. double click the drive that win2k is installed on
3. open the Documents and Settings folder
4. Open the All Users folder
5. open the start menu folder
6. open the programs folder
7. open the startup folder
8. delet all proggies you don't want runnin at start up

If that don't get all of them click up 4 times and instead of openin the all users folder open your username folder and follow the same steps as you did in the all users folder.
I hope this helps. I know how frustrating it is when you have 10 proggies starting up automatically.

later
Mike
