Stopping progammes which open on Vista start-up

Hi,

My parents have recently bought a Vista PC (stupid decision- all its annoying pop ups and jittery warning messages are very confusing for first time users)...

Anyway, every time they turn the computer on, Narrator and Magnifier pop up. It's very irritating and I've gone through all the settings and can't figure out how to stop them from opening on start-up.

Any ideas please?

I would've installed Ubuntu if I would've known the shenanigans Vista can pull.

Cheers.

Granted,though the pop ups are for there benefit.

This can be easily disabled via the control panel and disable UAC.

Vista is a good OS and will take a little understanding,though do remember....every new OS has its teething problems and im one of them with a few minor issues.click here
