    3. If prompted, click on Continue for the UAC prompt, or type in the administrator's password.

    4. Click on the Startup tab.


    5. To Disable a Startup Program.

You can use windows startup utility i.e msconfig..though its had some limitations.In the most refine way I can suggest u one software that well manages ur startup programs , using that u can add / remove or enable/disable ur startup programs. its just a click away from u , reason to recommend this is it comes bundles with many other utilities that boost ur PC performance.U may find it gr8 .

    If you do not want to mess with inbuilt utilities in Windows you can use a software called as Startup Manager. This tool helps you to modify the items at the time of logon. There are many options available in it. You can rename items, disable or enable it, or even create a batch file to run number of program in the order you want. This is a very light weight utility that you can try on windows. It is a free open source tool.
