    I cant seem to prevent WinFax Pro program to startup. I'm using Windows XP Prof.

    I have tried msconfig and I have tried looking all over in winfax program to prevent from starting up.

    It does not appear to loadup along w/ the other programs at startup. When I look at "Windows Task Manager" under Application it appears there at every startup.

    help?

    are you looking for Conmgr in msconfig this is the program for winfaxpro
    go here for a lsit of all startups
    http://www.sysinfo.org/startupinfo.php
    then open the zip file and open startup_all.htm and search for winfax and you will see the programs

    if not in msconfig its possible its in startup from programs
    > start > programs > startup
    and see whats there

    hi

    conmgr isnt listed at all in msconfig/startup

    the only checked marks are:

    avgcc32 - avg antivirus
    zlclient - zonealarm
    msnmsgr -msn messenger
    psfree - popblocker

    i dont seem to have winfax pro on my XPPRO box so i can see if there any options in the application to start on windows load - perhaps something else to check.

    It is loading as a service. Go to control panel>admin tools>services and disable.

    thanks crjdriver

    it worked~! hmm..this is something new. I didnt think that I would have to use services.msc to unload anything from startup.

    thanks
