How do you stop apps from auto starting on startup?

  1. There are a number of applications I'd just as soon didn't start
    when I startup the computer.

    How do I stop them from loading or starting automatically on startup?

    They're not pinned to the start menu.

    I don't want to delete them, just not have them start automatically
    when I start up.


    Oh - XP Home

    Run msconfig and check its startup tab for applications.
