How to disable an "auto start" program within Windows 7?

Answer
Look in these folders:

  • C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu
  • C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu

Un-check undesired programs in Start > Search > Msconfig > Startup .

You can also use WinPatrol 2010 or Sysinternals Autoruns to make the settings.
