Guyz, What software shall I use to stop a program from booting on start up. I needed the program but i dont want it to start on start up. No menu on its preferences that i can disable from booting

What program is it,usually there is a way tostop it booting,try looking in the start folder,some programs add it there.

Downloaded programs invariably add themselves to the startup menu unless you carefully monitor their options on installation.

Go to msconfig and untick it in start up.

Sorry should have said go to Run and type in msconfig then press enter on the keyboard.
Once in msconfig go to start up on the top bar and if the program is ticked just untick it.
You may have to restart the computer if so a box may appear when restarted just tick the little square on it and that will stop it from appearing every time you start up.
