Unable to disable Windows 7 Startup Item: CrossLoop

I've tried to disable the CrossLoop startup item 3 times using MSCONFIG.  (See image 1.)  Some details:

1. I was able to successfully disable the CrossLoop Service (image 2).
2. This isn't a big deal, but it irks me, but it's my laptop, if I don't want CrossLoop running as a startup item, that should be my call.
3. My bet: CrossLoop has installed a covert service that is reactivating CrossLoop as a startup item after I deactivate it.  Or, maybe, every time I run CrossLoop it checks the startup setting and reactivates it if it's deactivated.

Go to Start > Run and type in services.msc and click OK. See if you can find CrossLoop there. If found, double click on it to open up the Properties window. Change the startup type to either manual or if you don't want it to ever run, change to disabled. Restart and confirm if it's still starting up or not.

I do not use this, but this crossloop link suggests that the Pro version can be disabled.


Another approach is to use Startup Organizer to disable Crossloop. I do use Startup Orgranizer and I find it to be very effective. It is not free, but it is free to try to see if it works for you.

Unfortunately, it's the CrossLoop startup item that's giving me trouble, not the CrossLoop service.  (I've successfully disabled the service and the CrossLoop utility continues to run fine.


I'll give Startup Organizer a shot.
