    Remove short cut to selected programs on start up

    When the computer starts up certain programs spring into life that I don't
    want e.g., narrator. How do you view the setup of such programs in Vista
    windows to prevent them doing this?

    Go into control Panel> Ease of Access> turn it off from starting at Startup
    Also, Start>Programs>Accessories>Run> msconfig > OK> see what you have
    starting at startup

    Hope this helps,
