regedit

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\curr entversion\run
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\curr entversion\run once
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\curr entversion\run service
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\microsoft\windows\curre ntversion\run


that is where it all is. delete things that you KNOW you dont want running. there are things in there that you dont want to delete so be careful.

go to "run" on the start bar and go to "msconfig" and it will show all the app's on your toolbar and you can uncheck the ones you dont want to run.

same thing as going into the registry, but probably safer. there is also stuff at start>programs>startup that you can see in msconfig, but you can just delete that right out of the menu.

registry is where you go if you want to permanently remove them. msconfig just disables them.

You mean that you want something to remove programs from the System Tray on the Task Bar?

If so, right click on an empty space in the TaskBar or on the Start Button and select Properties. Make sure the TaskBar tab is selected in the Properties window.

Click on the Customize Button in the lower right corner of the Properties window. You will see a list of icons, most of which are set to "Hide when inactive" If you want these Icons to NEVER appear in the System tray, click on the Behavior and select "Always Hide"

That will remove the icon.

Yea, I wasn't sure he wanted to actually stop them from running. Some people just want to hide them to free up real estate on their task bar.

If you have spy sweeper, it allows you to edit startup prog. If you are unsure about what's safe to disable and not safe, go to http://pcpitstop.com/spycheck/scan.asp in IE or IE engine in FF and it will tell you what is running and what is safe to disable.
