Interested in steps for removing AIM from startup

Hi Everyone:

        I am interested in any steps or suggestions for removing AIM from startup.  I unchecked it from the Startup Tab of the msconfig utility which seems to have stopped it from loading at startup.  Is there any additional things which will need to be done?

        Any followup to this question will be appreciated.

       Thank you

Personally i suggest this tool:
http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml

although you have unchecked this from msconfig startup tab, it still remains there.
To remove this completely, use the simple and very small but effective program in the link above, I am using this myself.

Hi There:

       Thank you so much for the followup link to this resourceful and useful tool.  I do have one more followup question to this post.  Once I install Startup Control Panel, should I open each of the utlity tabs and uncheck any reference or references being made to AIM?

if you want to disable completely, you can actually right clikc on all the entries relating to AIM in all the tabs and delete the entry. notice that after deleting it will go through to the delete tab, which is what i like about the program, it still stores the value as a backup, but removes the entry completely from the startup (not just disable) so that you can't see it under msconfig->startup tab.

hope this helps!

Hi There:

       Thanks so much for the suggestions and resourceful link to Startup Control Panel.  Within this situation, unchecking AIM within the startup of msconfig was sufficient because I never saw this entry within any of the tabs of StartupCPL.  However, I am confident I will find the utility useful in future endeavors similiar to this one outlined.

          Many thanks again.
