    How do I prevent programs from reopening in the background?


    I have some programs like Armory Crate, Nvidia, Office, Phone, and other programs that restart themselves in the background after I END TASK in the Task Manager. My CPU is being worked up to 40% in use because of programs restarting themselves. I was able to find in regedit one of the programs' restart function and deleted it, but for some reason the program restarts anyways.I have zero startup apps enabled. Background apps settings are ALL unticked, so this is not the issue. I need something more in depth like a Regedit or console kind of solution. How do I permanently stop programs from rest

    :)

    Hi Rob,

    For us to narrow down your concern with reopening your programs from the task bar, we would like to know the following:

    Program running a background process?

    I'm running Corel Video Studio 2018, and it's updates function shows characteristics of a background process:

    - the program has an auto check daily plus a manual option for updates

    - manually checked, presented with an option of downloading an update and Ok'd, evidence of any activity vanishes from the program workspace, yet the connected internet modem activity light begins running hot as the download happens

    - it's repeatable over several up-date cycles

    The evidence seems to suggest a background activity - whilst the program/PC is free to use for other things. Several software packages do this.

    However, a check in task manager/processes, show all, does not display any info of a related background process for any Corel or Video Studio program. If a background process is being used by the software, MUST it be listed in the task manager/processes
    list?

    Platform is windows 7 home sp1 64bit plus the important patches.
