    Start Up Programs in sys tray

    Anyone know how I can permently remove some of the things that start up without uninstalling them? I go into System Config, and to start up, but you can only uncheck the boxes...

    all those programs should be in your Add / Remove somewhere.

    type this into the run menu: msconfig

    go to startup tab

    uncheck the programs you do not want to startup at window startup

    hope this helps you some.

    I know what u mean bro. Dont worry.


    You do not want to remove the programs, you dont even want to prevent the programs from starting up. You simply do not want the box in the bottom right hand corner displaying the items, clock etc.

    There IS a way of doing this, u can either download a program that will basically act as another GUI and place itself over windows, then u can manipulate it how you want

    OR

    You can download a Resource Hacker and start hacking away at windows, and you can remove it that way.

    Right click the programs in the sys tray. Then go to option/preferences and in some of them, there should be a box that says "start program when windows starts" or something like that. What are the programs.

    I know exactly what you mean Peace... This is how you get them out of the start up section in msconfig. Mind you, you will have to go into your registry to delete them.. Here is how

    The disabled entries are present in any of the locations:

    [HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupreg]
    [HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupfolder]

    That is really all you need to do. That will stop them from starting on system startup.

    If you want to clean up your startup tab in Msconfig... Then read previous post by "ME". I pointed you in the right direction. No worries though.. You won't harm your computer by going into the registry and deleting these items.

    the items will now only start when "YOU" start them and not when windows wants them started..

    You can also try this string in the registry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Run
