Enabling and disabling startup programs

While you are working with the System Configuration utility, you can configure your startup programs. You have several options for managing startup programs. You can:

Enable a specific startup program

If you previously disabled a startup program, you can change this by enabling the program to run at startup. To do this, select the program's checkbox.

Disable a specific startup program

If you don't want a program to start automatically when you log on, you can clear the related checkbox to disable it. A disabled startup program will no longer run on startup.

Enable all startup programs

If you want all relevant programs to be started automatically, select Enable All.

Disable all startup programs

If you don't want any relevant programs to be started automatically, select Disable All.

If you no longer need a startup program or you want to prevent it from being enabled in the future, you can remove its shortcut from the location specified or look for an option in the program to disable automatic startup. Whenever you modify startup programs, you should restart your computer and determine whether there is any negative impact on your computer.
