disable programs at start-up - win2k pro

Windows 2000 and Windows XP have two separate Run policies: the Windows 2000 Run at Startup policy and the Windows 2000 Legacy Run at Startup policy. Windows 2000 Professional, Windows 2000 Server, and Windows XP use these policies. The Windows 2000 and Windows XP Run at Startup policy is similar to the other Windows family of operating systems.

To modify this list:
Open the Microsoft Management Console (MMC), and then add the Group Policy snap-in.


Click Local Computer Policy, clickComputer Configuration, and then click Administrative Templates.


Click the System object, double-click Run these programs at user logon in the list of Local System policies in the right pane, and then click either Enable, Disable, or Not Configure.

NOTE: In Windows XP, click the System object, click the Logon object, and then double-click Run these programs at user logon.

To modify the list, you must enable the policy, and then click Show to modify the list of programs to run at Startup. A list of these files can be found in the registry under the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer\Run

The second Run policy involves legacy programs. Many third-party programs such as RealAudio can be included in this category. These programs use a different registry key to configure the program to run at Startup. This registry key (the same registry key that Windows 95/98 and Windows NT use) is located at:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

-or-

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce

Programs that are configured to run at Startup from this registry key are considered legacy programs.

Windows 2000 and Windows XP do not enable you modify this list directly from the MMC Group Policy snap-in. Windows 2000 and Windows XP only enable you to enable or disable this entire list. To do this, go to the object in the MMC that contains the "Run these programs at user logon" policy. This is explained in the preceding section. Then find the policy called "Disable legacy run list". If you do not want any of your legacy programs to run, you can enable this policy.
