Windows 7: Don't want to remove programs from CCleaner startup again and again

Don't want to remove programs from CCleaner startup again and again

Hello everybody,

can you help me with my problem, please. How can I manage startup programs in Windows 7 in an efficient way?

I've been using CCleaner to prevent some programs to load at startup. I have even deleted some items from the startup list of CCleaner. But there are still some programs that add to the startup list again every time I run them. These programs are iTunes, microTorrent etc. As a consequence I have to delete their entries again and again from the CCleaner startup list.

Is there a better way to solve my problem? Is there a handy utility that can block forever some programs to add to the startup list?

Thanks for help,
Lord of rings

Click on the Start button

Type in msconfig and open it.

Click on the Startup tab, then uncheck the programs you don't want to start with Windows.

Click the Start button and in the search box type "msconfig" without the quotes. Right click the msconfig.exe at the top of the windows that opens and choose "Run as administrator".
In the window that opens click on the Sytsrt Up tab and uncheck the programs you don't want to start on start up. Click apply. If that doesn't clear them all then openeach program that does not conform and get into it'e "prperties" or "Settings" and see if there is a box there that says something like "Always start when Windows is started" you can uncheck

BTW Boozad, don't you find having all those progs open at start up slow you boot up time. I only have My A/V running. Anything else I open when i need it! But then I'm a Gregrocker student

Yes, that may be a part of solution. What if I start a program manually? I am talking about programs like iTunes, microTorrent etc. They add to the startup again and again every time I start them manually. It is difficult for me to configure each and every program separately in order to prevent them to add to startup. Is there a handy utility that can solve my problem?

Thanks for answering my question,
LOR
