I have wet up a server program called 602lan on windows server 2003, the cpu useage is showing that 602lan is using 98% of the cpu usage and i think its a conflict because I have two different broadband routers installed (one BT and one freeserve.  it wont let me uninstall the freeserve software so I want to delete the program from the startup menu so that it does not load when the server is loaded.  How do i delete this from startup?

Are you familiar with the registry?


If so, check this key...
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

That is one of the places that startup programs hide.

You could install spybot. Its main task is to find and remove spyware but it also has an option to remove programs that start at boot up. It shows you what will strat up which is generally rather more than you would expect (or want) then alows you to select which to remove - which it does so you don't need to edit the registry yourself.
