Prevent automatic startup on Windows PC

I don't want RealPlayer/RealTimes to open when I start up my PC. What setting do I need to change?

You can disable software from the Start Up programs list by following these steps:

  1. Click the Windows Start button, then click Run.
  2. Type MSCONFIG, then click OK. The System Configuration Utility window opens.
  3. Click the Startup tab.
  4. When you see the list of programs that automatically launch when Windows starts, look at the check boxes next to each program: a check in the box means to start the program, and an empty box means you do NOT want the program to start with Windows. Uncheck the check box next to RealPlayer and RealTimes, and click OK.
