I would appreciate some guidance with this annoying problem, on starting my computer it boots to the desktop as it should, then auto opens the windows c:\ folders.
I cannot trace the reason for this; I have looked in the start up menu and found it empty can anyone shred any light on this, Thanks Dave

To remove anything from your start-up (which shows on your sys-tray), click on Start/Run/Type in msconfig/ click on start-up tab/remove the check from the program you want to stop loading/click on Apply/OK.

Roy, do you have a network connection setup? Like, for cable or DSL access?

You might have "wake on lan" turned on, which can turn on your pc if you get a request off of the network.

Hi,

Can anyone shed some light on why a computer constantly starts up on it's own at various times. Auto maintanence is shut down, that was my first thought, but this has me puzzled.

Thanks in Advance
Roy

i posted a message on AUGUST 17 on load on startup you said that you did not recognize run statemgr it should have been run,statemgr they are two different things.i have a DESKTOP but SYNCHRONIZATION MANGER .

Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this message   By Josh Lowe on Monday, August 19, 2002 - 09:06 pm:

You can safely uncheck:

country selection
cpq boot perf dp
em_exe
nvcpl dameon
nwiz
adusermon
desktop
loadqm
ad service

Things I don't recognize:
runstatemgr ?? What is the folder where this is found?
synchronization manger ?? Perhaps software for a palm type of device?

Everything else you should leave checked.

Hi,

you can stop all these programs from running at startup by editing the registry
use start/run
type in: regedit

NOTE:before making any changes to the registry you should back it up!!!

you will find the list of running programs here:

My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\
Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\
Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\
Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx
My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\
Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices
My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\
Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServicesOnce

any that you want to stop running on startup, you can just delete.
P.S. If you are unsure of any programs listed,I
suggest you leave them alone.
P.P.S. ALWAYS back-up the registry BEFORE making ANY changes!
Rob.

I uninstall a program its gone from my start up menu. But when I go to win.ini it is still there with a check at it.Does that mean that I still have the program?How do I get it from there?

Hello -

I have a Win2000 system that opens the System32 folder window on the desktop everytime windows starts. Every time. It didn't do this when I first upgraded to Win2000 over Win98. I can't see any obvious "load" or "open" commands in startup or the registry (but it's a big place and I don't know exactly what I should be looking for)

any Ideas?

thanks,

Paul

Josh, I just went into my computer files/programs and deleted every reference to Corel MediaIndexer and it is gone for good. I wasn't given all of that program anyway so I didn't need the indexer. Thanks for your help, I am still working on all of the programs running on start up.

Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this message   By MagnoliaBlue on Tuesday, May 01, 2001 - 04:29 pm:

Thanks Josh. I right clicked on Corel Media Indexer and it only says Start/Exit so I click on exit and it disappears from my system tray but comes back everytime. I can't find anything in any part of the corel program that says properties but I will continue looking and let you know what luck I have. Thanks again.

MagnoliaBlue:

Not everything will be listed in that folder. That was a starting point. I suggest you run msconfig as suggested in my earlier post, and you should be able to get most of everything under control from there.

If that doesn't help the media indexer, then you need to right click on it in the system tray, go to properties or settings, and see if there is an option to not run it at startup.

Josh

Josh, I went to start/programs/startup ...and all that is listed there is (1)Corel Media Folder Indexer 8 and (2)Microsoft Find Fast. The Corel has been right clicked and deleted on numerous occasions and then rebooted and Corel shows up again like the proverbial bad penny. Any other suggestions, please? How come none of the other start-up programs are listed there?

Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this message   By MagnoliaBlue on Friday, April 27, 2001 - 02:25 pm:

Thank you, Josh. I will try that and let you know how it turns out.

MagnoliaBlue:

You do have quite a bit starting with your computer.

What you can do is click start/programs/startup.... there is a list of some of the programs starting with windows. Just right-click on each one that you want to remove and choose delete from the pop-up window. Even programs you use don't nessesarily need to start with windows.... that just gives the program the ability to startup faster when you want to use it.

After you remove the ones you want, then restart and make sure all is working well. Then, click start/run/type in 'msconfig' without the quotes and hit ENTER.

Click the startup tab. Uncheck the programs you don't want started with windows. Reboot. This should correct your problem.

However, there are a few that you should NOT remove:

All of the NAV or Norton stuff - antivirus
GWHotKey - if you use the special buttons on your KB.
LoadPowerProfile
Systray.exe
MSTask - if you use the taskscheduler for windows.
WinModem stuff - it may be needed to run your modem properly.


There are a few things in that list that I don't know what they are for. So.... remove only the ones you are sure about first..... then on reboot, remove one more, reboot, if all works, remove one more, reboot...so on, until all the ones you want off are taken off.

Hope that helps,

Josh Lowe
