I have a HP Pavilion a820n with windows XP. Every time I boot up updates from " HP Agent " starts running. What is it, where do I find it, and how do I stop it from running every time I boot up?

when I tried to uncheck the box per your instructions i got a message in a window labeled:
an access denied error was returned while attempting to change a service. You may need to logon using an administrator account to make specified changes.
I am the only person using this computer. What is an administrator account?

Although you may be the only one using that computer, you might have set your account differently. An Administrator of an account has priviliges for everything on a computer. You can easily set your account to be the Administrator. If you need help to change the account settings, let me know and I'll help you as best as I can.

Sorry for the delay in my response I live in the northeast and I was flooded due to the excessive rains. Yes i would like help in not being an administrator I have no need for this. Then I can enter the msconfig and fix the problem.

I know how you feel. I live in the Northeast as well and had flooding issues.
What version of Windows are you using?
There are 2 options:
- Go to Start, Control Panel, User Accounts, and click on the account you are currently using. Does it say that you are an Administrator? If so, try my next option.
- Go to Start, Control Panel, User Accounts, and click on Create a new account. Set up a new account as an Adminstrator.
Let me know if this works. If not, I will tell you more things to try.
