How do i change which programs start at "startup". Got a few programs that are annoying that i don't want starting up when they feel like it, lol.And in other news, there is not a 12-pack of beer big enough for me to reformat and reinstall ALL my drivers, programs and such, if only there was a way to keep all that stuff or some of it in reformat, that should be a future update, lol

Yeah unfortunately gone are the days that the Startup menu was used. All programs now write themselves into the System Registry. So as said previously by The_Other_One, you can either use MSConfig, or you can also edit the Registry Directly, but only do that if you know what you are doing.

Cheers,

thanks alot guys, i didn't go into the registry because the programs that start on there own are mostly programs i need, but i don't want them starting all at the same time lol. But the one i didn't need i blitzed with Adware SE, then spybot, then nortan antivirus in safemode, the stragglers i did go into the registry for, and also simply did a search and deleted some other ones.
