    Stop programs running at boot


    Middle of last week I was using Excel on my PC, closed it and shut the computer down. When I turned it back on, Excel opened a blank workbook when the computer started up and does this every time now.


    Last night, I had Chrome open (watching Netflix), closed Chrome, shut down and this morning when I powered on the PC I could hear the Nexflix program playing in the background while I was at the Window logon screen, before I had signed in. After signing in, both Chrome and Excel were running.


    I have checked in the Stettings/Apps&Features/Start-up and also in the Start-Up folder in the Programs menu (~AppData/Roaming/Microsoft/Windows/Start Menu/Programs/Start-Up) but they are not listed. Also in the default user account..


    Last windows update I had was a feature update on 1st June but that was about a week before this started happening. I have not instilled any new software for a while.


    Any suggestions as to how I can stop this before every program I run just reopens before I log on?


    Thanks

    :)

    stoping running programs

    Hi,

    There are certain apps in Windows that aren't possible to be stopped as they're needed by your system. If you want to stop certain apps to be stopped from running in the back ground, follow the steps below.

    • Press Windows key, and type in "task manager".
    • Choose Task Manager > More details.
    • Right-click on the apps that you want to stop from running, and click on
      End task
      .

    Let us know what happens after following the suggestion.

  3. Program stops running occasionally

    Hi Randolph,

    Thank you for posting your question in the Microsoft Community.

    I understand that the Mathematica program is not working properly in Windows 10. I will try to help you with this issue.

    Please answer these questions to get more clarity on this issue:


    • Have you installed all pending updates on the pc?

    • What is the error message you get with this program?

    • Is the issue specific to this program?

    • Do you have the latest version of this program installed?

    You may boot the computer in a clean boot state and check if the issue persists. When you start Microsoft Windows, typically there are several programs that start automatically and run in the background that may interfere with the system. These programs
    may include antivirus and system utility programs. When you perform a clean startup procedure, you prevent these programs from starting automatically.

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows: (Applies to Windows 10)
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

    Note: After you have finished troubleshooting, follow the steps under “How to reset the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting with clean boot” in the article to boot to normal startup.

    Keep us informed to help you further.
