Startup programs not starting

I have several programs such as AVG, Setpoint, Comodo firewall and Steam set to automatically start when i boot Windows 7. But nothing ever starts up... I have to manually open each one. I went into msconfig and it shows all these programs are in startup. I have 64 bit if that makes a difference.

Type services.msc in the start search box. Take a look at the programs and make sure they're set to 'automatic' ... right click on the service and choose properties to see how they're set

Please do not use AVG and completely uninstall that from the machine.

I have fixed at least 30-40 machines with it in the last week alone that had bsod, poor performance and a ton of more issues.

AVG is the scourge of the internet and worse than an actual virus.

Disabling it only, will not help.

Are you saying they are in msconfig?

They are all set to automatic and the service has already started.

And yes they are in msconfig.

That's strange.

Try downloading this excellent tool for Startup entries and processes.

dotTech Exclusive: Free AnVir Task Manager!


The license name and code are further down the page.

This is legit,. it was worked out between the developer and the owner of the site

Use Autoruns from Sysinternals - the Logon tab should hold entries for the programs - are they ticked? Uninstall AVG though.

Yes Autoruns is great,. but more for the power user.

You can get in trouble if you uncheck the wrong box.

The whole point is to see if the boxes are checked in the first place.
