thatshould work - I would suggest you download 2 programms from cnet.com for free

CCleaner - good way to clean up all the cookies and **** that is constantly clogging up the PC - also quick way to clean cookies before using quidco

Advance Windows Care - looks for spyware and checks registry as well as a host of others - easy to see file for start up files and programmes - easy to switch off

Another way maybe is to download a prog that will let you choose which progs start up when you switch pc on download for free here you can select/deselect exactly what you want to start or stop from a list.

I haven't used this one myself but it has got some really good reviews !


Publisher's description of Quick Startup

From GlarySoft:
Quick Startup was developed to provide quick access to all of the programs that are automatically started when you turn on or logon to your computer. Such programs consume a good part of your system's resources, and can slow down other programs. Using Quick Startup, you can inspect, edit, and/or temporary disable such programs.

Version 2.3 is a bug fixing release.
