Windows 7 : Remove a program from startup

The number of times I have had to remove a program from my start-up sequence in windows 7 is quite large. And the shocker is, the number of times that I have stumbled in trying to figure out how, is pretty large too ! XP had this option nicely nestled in the taskbar and startup menu, and it longer is there.

Anyways, there is a much easier way to do this.

1. Hit the Windows button in the bottom-left of your screen (hopefully if you havent reconfigured your start bar)

2. Type msconfig in the run-text box ; and click on msconfig.exe from the Programs Search Results.

3.  Click on the startup tab

4. Select the programs you want to disable on startup and hit apply/OK.

5. And you are done. Hope this helps.
