    When I start my computer I have several items in there that start also. One being quick time and a few photo programs that do not need to start. Where and how can I add or remove these?

    To stop them from starting up when you start up
    Start > Run > Msconfig > startup

    you can goto start/run/msconfig/startup and uncheck the ones you don't want
    or use ccleaner/tools/startup and remove them

    If I run this program and remove them from the list for start up will it remove the whole program?

    OK i made a few changes to the start up menu and it wants to restart and thats ok but when it boots up I get a message that says the system utility has started and wants to know if I want it to start that program everytime I reboot. I dont want to screw something up so I let it undo the 3 things I changed and restart again
