    why can't i stop one of the start up programs?

    have any tried to stop thier program running during start-up? I have and it
    won't work for some reason. I tried the following:
    start
    run
    misconfig
    and select the following start up softwares to stop running.
    As soon as i restart my pc, it was running the program that i didn't want!
    The program was a bluetooth wireless software that i tried to prevent it from
    running everytime when i switch on my pc. is there another way i could
    prevent it from running or do i have to uninstall it?

    Go into the bluetooth wireless software itself. See what options it gives you!

    Open Defender, go to Tools, then Software Explorer, select
    the subject program and choose Disable.
