How to disable startup programs ?

I want to disable my antivirus at statup because it causes my windows to start slowly ..
I tried to disable from " msconfig " but it was of no use , ccleaner was unable to do anything it shows access denied..
Any other way ?

You can try going into the actual program and look for settings that disable the program from loading at startup. Personally, I wouldn't disable my antivirus in Windows. I know there is a way to delay programs from booting right away you might want to look into that.

Very easy. Get the free WinPatrol. Go to the Startup button and right click on the service you want to start delayed. Then click 'Move to delayed startup program list'. Then click the Delayed Startup button and set the service to the delay you want. For the rest see the picture.
