    When my PC reboots, all these programs that I have disabled startup again. I absolutely hit the apply button, but still some of them keep coming back again. Is there a way to stop them from returning over and over again? I only want my antivirus to start. I have a program called Internet Download Manager and that one always starts up on reboot no matter how many times I disable it.

    Thanks for your help. I am running XP SP2.
