    Right click on your task bar.

    Select properties and left click on that.

    Un Tick where it says, “Show Quick Launch.”

    Click OK or apply.

    After you do that, post back here and tell us if that is what you wanted to accomplish. :)

    Hey i think he means Programs that start up, eg on the left side near the clock.

    If you click Start -> Run -> msconfig then click on the Startup tab, u can take all the ticks out, and your computer will start up, just not all the programs, eg your antivrius etc.

    I use a program called [bold]End It All[/bold] it can be used to shut down start up and backround programs.It comes in handy when backing up movies and you don't want any programs running.

    cjc you are right. But someone told me to be careful in doing so. I might disable something I need. Is this true?

    So what you are asking is for the Icons in your task bar, on the [bold]RIGHT side[/bold] of the task bar, next to the clock? Is this correct? If it is, what exactly are the programs that you want to disable at startup so that one can give you a reasonable answer as to their affect once they are not present/installed/running in the background, etc.

    List them if you will...

    Hey

    Yeah, i meant right, i was typing the post just when i was leaving for work lol

    Basically the only thing you really need to keep is Antivirus/Firewalls....

    Might be best as Scuba Bud said, just list all the programs you see there

    Hey

    As ddp said, Download, Install, Update and Run: Adware SE Personal, Spybot Search and Destory, run Housecall (Online Virus Scan) at http://housecall.trendmicro.com and then download HiJackThis, and paste your log here.
