Windows live and Real Player Load ar startup.

How do I stop that?
I have looked in start up to find nothing there but yada yada.
Background: Windows 7
Several users myself as administrator.
Cause and effect; When I log on as administrator or my user profile Real Player and Windows Live both load. Windows 7 because I testing it out have set it off. Real Player I don't know what I did on install. Real Player also starts when all users log on.
The problem is I can't turn them off!
Anyone know where or how?

Did you try msconfig?

My own PC is a Real Player free zone...haven't used it in years but could turn it off using msconfig. The problem is that every, time it updates itself, it rechecks the startup box and you need to disable it again. I don't know about Windows live but it may also be an msconfig issue. Check there first.

Nothing there for either program.
Real Player is needed for some Internet Sites videos.
I too had no problem with startup programs in prior OS. They had options to turn things on or off. Real Player SP dosn't. Niether does Windows Live. But it inbeds with Windows 7 so I expect it to hide the "I'm dominant over all others" button.
