    I have a prog that I use a lot but not only does it start up on its own on bootup, it keeps starting up on its own when I close it. How do I access my startup list in winXP to delete it from the startup list?

    Run msconfig, startup tab, uncheck the program. What program is it?

    If that doesn't work you can check the settings for the program itself. It might have an option to not run on startup or run in the background.
