Follow the following steps:
Srart -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Information
-> Tools -> System Configuration -> Start Up (tab)
There is a list of programs and a check box for what you want to run on startup.
My question is: Where does this list come from? Can I eliminate entries on the list, so I don't have all those programs there, as choices? I know I can leave the check box empty to not have a program run, but I want to be able not to see some programs there at all. I hope I am making sense.
