Temporary closure of progs

  Meshuga 20:22 25 Jul 2004

I want to be able to disable certain Progs temporarily in order to eliminate them from being a possibe cause of a problem. They are:- Spybot/Ad-aware/Spywareblaster/Norton AV/Norton utilities. I can`t see a way of doing it short of uninstalling each in turn and then reinstalling.I use XPHome OS.can Anyone help please. Meshuga.

If so, you can just move them elsewhere and reboot.

You can close down any running program from Control Alter Delete.

You can also prevent the loading of drivers and other programs when windows boots up by going to Start menu, Run, msconfig, and uncheck the programs you want to disable on the Startup tab. Repeat the process to re-enable them.
