Windows 7: Disabling Popping Up of a Startup Program

Disabling Popping Up of a Startup Program

Hi all,

Today I have installed a new software called TP-Link Wireless Config. Utility. I added it to the windows start up folder. Yet, every time when I start my computer, it starts with a pop up screen. This is annoying.

Is there any way to disable this phenomenon (like adding a string at the end of the xxx.exe file such as /s etc.)?

I do not want to disable the entire program. I just want to stop the pop up screen.

Best regards.

Is the pop-up a configuration screen like this?

You might have something in the Advanced menu that will turn off the pop-up. Or perhaps something else in the user manual in the set up section.

Yes, exactly the same pop-up screen.

However, there is no option available to disable it. The user manual has also no info related to that.
