Hello.  I tested SharePoint Easy Setup script (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/cjohnson/archive/2010/10/28/announcing-sharepoint-easy-setup-for-developers.aspx). I decided to stop the script but when I restart my computer the script will try the installation again. How to stop the script from running when computer restarts?

Check the Run and RunOnce registry keys, and delete anything related to the script: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa376977%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

Weird, but I see nothing to delete when I check Run and RunOnce registry keys.

Is it in your Startup folder?
