Stop Auto-starting programs

Auto start programs at time can be annoying. These could be a printer driver loading when you dont use the print very often. You still want to have the driver but your dont want it to load each time you start or restart you computer as it makes the computer take longer to start. Windows drags along when it is loading and most times we simply want it to load faster even with an SSD drive.

Note that Windows has a complete list of what needs to be started automatically. This is held in the registry and installing and uninstalling does make the registry inefficient which means that it would need to be cleaned from time to time. There are two options with stopping an auto-start.
