How to NOT AutoStartUp some programs:

by vmars956 / July 11, 2005 7:01 AM PDT

When i run msinfo32 (winXP) >software environment>startup programs:
i can see all the pgms that automatically run at system startup, hibernate.
But how can i set some of these to NOT autoStart, like LtMoh, OneTouchMonitor etc..
I know there's some esoteric util that does that, can someone tell me the name of it and where to find it?

Go to Start --> Run and type "msconfig" without quotes, and press enter. The startup items are under the startup tag.

Hope this helps,

Stop auto-startup

You can stop many progtams from auto-starting through msconfig: Go to Start > Run, type in msconfig, and click OK. Next, select the Startup tab, and uncheck those programs you don't want to run automatically.

A program you may be thinking of is Startup Cop, available from

It can do a little more than does msconfig, but costs a few bucks.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
