Freelance starts before network logon bo

By shahmatd ·
A funny thing happened, Lotus Freelance would actually startup before the network logon box. I have never intended to have Lotus Freelance loaded in the Startup in the
Start->Programs->Startup. I've tried looking into Win.ini under [Windows]->load=but it's not there either. And I've even tried uninstalling Lotus Freelance, yup.. you guessed it right. Lotus Freelance doesn't start anymore before the network logon box. But let's just say that I really do need Lotus Freelance.

Because it's starting before the network logon, it's gotta be in the registry. Check these keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices

Anything in these keys gets started automatically, just like the StartUp Program Group & the LOAD= & RUN= lines in WIN.INI. Incidentally, lots of stuff ends up putting things in these keys. I usually go through them on a regular basis to make sure I'm notrunning anything I don't need. (And it's becoming a favorite spot for viruses... BackOrifice, ILOVEYOU & varients, etc...)

There's a free utility at zdnet called startup cop. It allows you to control what programs start during the boot up. This is similar to the MS utility included in Win 98 accessories, but works for Win 95
