Welcome meemoe,

See if this helps,

For on screen keyboard, click the options button then towards the bottom, control whether on screen keyboard starts when I log on.

On-Screen Keyboard - Vista Forums

For magnifier, click on the gear shaped options button, control whether magnifier starts when I log on.

Magnifier Starts at Startup - Enable or Disable

here's a couple screenshots,

That's in the Ease Of Access Center in your control panel. Search that in your control panle.

And your computer wont break =)

You would need a LOT of pop-ups to crash a modern processor...

Similar Problem

My on screen keyboard is run on startup, and I don't want it to.

I have gone into the ease of access menu and made sure that the "Use On-Screen Keyboard" box is NOT checked.

I have run msconfig, nothing there runs osk.exe.

I have tried using the autoruns program that was suggest in the vista form, again nothing is found that runs osk.exe

I have confirmed that it is actually osk.exe running by going into the task manager when the On-Screen keyboard is running and found "osk.exe".

Any advise or suggestions would be helpful.
