Hi,

 

The actual process will depend on the version of Windows you're using - for example.

 

Windows 8.

 

Go to the Desktop.  Right click an empty area of the Taskbar and launch Task Manager.  Select the Startup tab and follow the guide in the link below.

Restart the PC for any changes to take effect.

 

Windows 7, Windows Vista etc.

 

Hold down the Windows key and press R.  In to the Run box type msconfig and hit enter.  In the following window, click the Start up tab, remove the tick next to each start up item you wish to disable and then click Apply to make the change.  Restart the PC for the change to take effect.

 

Regards,
