e-mail at start up???

  Newuser2533 22:46 12 Jan 2004

When I log into my bt yahoo server everything starts to load at the same time.
- The front page begins to appear
- The e-mail page begins to appear
- The virus prog tries to update itself.
Can I stop this caos ?
I only used to get the front page up and then choose to read my e-mails at my leisure, and i would like to go back to this.
Help please.

Check your startup folder to see what shortcuts are in there. If the offending progs aren't there, click on Start>Run>type 'msconfig' without the ', click on the startup tab and untick the IE and OE entries. Best leave the AV one alone as you want it to start up automatically. Check your AV progs properties to deselect "auto check for updates" (or similar)
