tea timer or kaspersky lab A/V. you don't want a program that completely blocks all startup items, because most program will add a temporary startup to clean their install files out of the computer and blocking them will cause the programs to not act correctly

Alright, I have looked around in SBSD and can't seem to find how to turn off the dialouge box, is there anyway I can turn it off?

Yes, but it didn't seem to help, I'm just going to have to keep TeaTimer on, it's been the one with the best results.
