Removing programme from start up

I want to remove DAP from automatically starting with the system. I thought I could do this through the Software Explorer part of Windows Defender but have been unable to. Any ideas on a work around?

Select <Start>, <Run> and in the box that pops up type 'msconfig' (without the '). There is a tab called Startup. Click on this tab and deselect anything you dont want to run at startup from this list. If you don't recognise the name then best to leave it alone as a lot of stuff needs to run, i.e your Firewall/antivirus etc. You will be prompted to restart your PC for the changes to take effect.

Just spotted this is the Vista forum, In that case click on the windows logo (what used to be the 'start' button and type msconfig into the search box at the bottom.

Also...............many progs thst are running in the notification area have an option to disable at startup if you right click the icon.
