    Go to microsoft.com, search for "Autoruns". Great utility for managing
    startup programs...

    Does this work for Vista Home Premium?

    Re: How to block startup programs

    Start each program in turn and look in the respective program
    options/preferences for ways to prevent the program starting with Windows..
    this is how you SHOULD do it..

    For me, if a program does not have this function, I tend to remove and
    forget about the program..
