Some programs start up automatically when Windows starts up


I am running Windows 7 on my HP laptop. I have 2 apps that start up automatically when I boot Windows.
How can I stop these programs from starting up automatically?

Thank you.

What two programs are you referring to.

You can go to System configure and uncheck programs you don't want startup at boot.
