Windows 7: Autostart - IE9, Word, Excel

Autostart - IE9, Word, Excel

Hello there,

Basically, the title sums it all up.
Everytime I load the windows 7 professional, the 3 programs loads itself up too.
Both Word and Excel starts with an empty page.
IE9 will try to connect to the internet.
And I can't seem to disable them from autostart.

I have looked in the Startup folder. It's empty.
I've tried msconfig. I don't see anything related to IE9, or MSOffice in there.

So, please help.
Thank you!

Hi azul and welcome to Seven Forums. You can download Autoruns from Sysinternals. That will tell you what is starting for where and allow you to disable an entry.Autoruns for Windows. It is a portable application and needs no installation.

Thank you, kado897!

I've unticked all options under Internet Explorer, but when I restart Windows, the 3 programs still loads...
Am I missing a step or steps?
And, I'm not sure where to look for to disable Word and Excel. Help please.

Perhaps,let me try "repairing" Office in Control Panel.

It's worth a try. I've never come across that problem so I would just be guessing. Perhaps others may have some ideas.

It's not working.
The 3 program still loads itself when windows starts.

Any other ideas?

You told you have checked the Startup folder, so I assume you mean your personal Startup folder. You also need to check the All Users Startup folder.

Your personal Startup folder is here:
C:\Users\Your_Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
Here are the shortcuts for programs set to start automatically when you boot to Windows desktop using your user account.

Startup folder for all users is:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
Here are all programs set to start automatically when any of the user accounts is logged in. This folder exists also when there's only one user profile set up.


Notice that both AppData and ProgramData folders are hidden by default.

Dear Kari,

Thank you for your reply.
I've checked out the extensions you've posted.
There is nothing in those folders except for a desktop.ini file in there.

There's only 2 users on this computer - an administrator and a user, and I am using the user account.
The only thing I found it weird is that the 3 programs I mentioned only load during the startup of the user account, but not the admin account.

I would like to try to solve this matter before deciding if I should create another user account as I don't want to mess up the account I'm using at the moment.
