Programs autostart after boot in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update


In this build I have a problem with Chrome and NordVPN. When I turn off the PC and I log in the next day, it recovers the lastest pages visited in Chrome and it open automatically NordVPN I have fast statup disabled and the option "use my login info for complete updates" disabled and the problem is still here. I'm facing this issue since 16251

Here's the steps that I performed : 

1. Configuring registries : 

regedit > hkey local machine > system > current control set  > control > session manager > memory management
Enable "Prefetchers" and Modify it to "1"
2. Disable third party application services running : 

-press windows logo button + r then type in : msconfig
-then please go to "Services" tab
-And then select the box that says "Hide all Microsoft services"
-Then hit "Apply" and "Ok"

I can't perform a System Restore or Create another user. I want a fix (if possible in the user that I'm using now)

Is there any way for fix it?


EDIT: This is a new feature of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. We need to get this changed soon.

Hello to everyone in this thread!

This is actually a change in the core functionality of Windows in this development cycle.

Old behavior:
- When you shut down your PC, all apps are closed

- After reboot/restart, you have to re-open any app you'd like to use

New behavior:

- When shutting down your PC, any open apps are "bookmarked" (for lack of a better word)

- After reboot/restart, these apps will re-open automatically

If you want to start with no apps open (other than those set to auto-start via Task Manager/Start), you'll need to ensure all apps are closed before shutting down or restarting the PC.


The desire is to create a seamless experience wherein, if you have to reboot a PC, you can pick back up quickly from where you left off and resume being productive.  This has far-ranging impacts across the OS (in a good way).

We'll discuss this more in the next flight release blog post, so stay tuned!
