Go to:
Start / Run
In the dialog box, type in msconfig
Run the program.
Select the startup tab, and uncheck any programs that you do not want to run at startup.
Click on apply.
The next time you start the computor, those applications will not run.

If you want to remove the chat program from the computor, go to
Settings / Control Panel / Add/Remove programs.
Search through the list and click on the chat program.
Click on remove.

go to Start-->Run and type "msconfig"

There will be a list of programs with check boxes next to them...uncheck anything you don't want starting up with windows.
