Also have a look in > All programs > Startup and delete any shortcuts in there too that you don't want.

Also - look in the registry:

Start, run, type regedit

Browse to HKLM, SOFTWARE, Microsoft, Windows, Currentversion, Run

Make sure there is nothing in there that shouldn't be - if you are unsure - post the names of the programs up - and someon can help you out deciding which ones you don't need.

Hi,

First, see if there is an option similar to "load at startup" in the corresponding application(s). If so, uncheck the option. Secondly, you may use the MSCONFIG.EXE utility in Windows to troubleshoot Windows startup.

Also, a lot of startup programs -- for example, AOL Messenger, MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, have options built into the program to start at bootup.  Many of the programs that put an icon in your system tray have an option on one of their menus to start the program at system boot; all you have to do is disable that.  For example, if AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) is on of them:  load up AOL IM, click the menu My AIM, then go to the menu Edit Options, then Edit Preferences.
Now in that window, click the General TAB and look for a check box with the text "Start AIM when Windows starts". Uncheck that and that'll solve your problem for AIM. Yahoo Instant Messenger is similar:  click on the Messenger menu, select Preferences, click on the General tab, remove the check mark next to When I start up my computer Automatically start Yahoo! Messenger.
