    Remove startup program not showing in Task Manager


    Old software that I use regularly slows the boot process and other applications. I cannot find it in any "startup" folder (even Task Manager).

    There are two registry entries in

    Computer\HKEY_USERS\ ... (etc.) ending with ...\program.exe\shell\open\command

    It does not look to me as if those lines refer to boot startup. If I take off the ".exe" extension the program name appears in over a dozen registry locations. I cannot find an option inside the program to disable starting up with Windows. I have a log entry in 2015 that I removed the program from automatic startup, but the note does not say HOW I did that. I think it was by removing it from some startup folder, but Windows Explorer is not finding it.

    How do I make the program stop loading automatically at bootup but still respond to the start MENU shortcut?

    :)

    Programs not showing in startup tab in task manager

    I recently discovered that the apps I set to run on startup were not open, I had to run them manually. Thought it was a fluke but it happened the next day. I thought, no problem, I'll just open up the task manager startup tab... and then I discovered that
    the programs I want to start are not listed (Steam and Discord)

    Here is a screenshot of my task manager startup tab if you need it. (A lot of programs have been removed from it for some reason)

    Help would be appreciated on how to add these programs back.

    Thank you.

    Windows 10 - cannot add exec to Startup in Task Manager

    I purchased a new computer with Windows 10 already installed. I am trying to add an exec to the startup list but Win10 will not accept it. The exec runs successfully on my Windows 10 machine if I start it manually.

    Steps I've taken: Task Manager, Startup Tab, File>Run New Task. (browse to location, select.) It will start immediately, but does not show up on the list to autostart, nor does it start on reboot.

    Any suggestions?

  4. Remove startup program not showing in Task Manager

    Unknown program in Task Manager-Startup Programs


    I am using Windows 10 Home up-to-date. Just found this entry (Program) in my Task Manager-Startup Programs. It has no identification except 'Program' . On right click it doesn't show any properties or location just the enable or disable button. I have disabled it but am just curious as to what I can do to remove this program. Thanks for any info I can get on this.
