What program is it? You can go into services and set it to manual start, which is a better way then unchecking it using msconfg.

I use Mike Lin's startupcpl. An excellent program.

StartupCPL didn't work for me in RC, so I just used msconfig instead. No point using other programs if I already have what i need...
