How do I choose which programs will startup with windows?
And how do I prevent certain programs to startup with windows?
And how do I close sistray programs normally without pressing C-A-D, such as B's Clip, god knows what it is?

At times you don't, can't. Unless you have a good uptodate firewall and antivirus checking each channel open, you won't.

But Most of the programs you install give you an option to start at Windows bootup or not. Always uncheck the option to start at Windows startup, unless it is a firewall or AV program.

See above, else check in Start->Programs->StartUp, delete those entries you don't trust.
Else check in Start->Run, type msconfig32 {hit enter}, Startup, uncheck those things you don't trust, click OK, then reboot.

Close them? Usually by rightclicking on them and choosing Exit or Quit. If you want to get rid of them, foremost check in add/remove programs. Or look up their name with Windows help and look for an uninstaller.

If none of either, ask for help in this forum. Smiley

B's Clip doesn't have an exit button, that's true. The only way to stop it, is to kill it in the Task Manager, or as he did, via msconfig.

B's Clip is actually a program that helps you to format CD-RW/DVD-RW +/-
It can come in quite handy at times, though I got rid of it myself. Mainly because I don't use it.
