preventing ME from automatic startup?

This may be a bit of complicated question/answer, but I hope not.

 

I've had ME for about 3 years on my computer, but I rarely use it. Back when I first got it, I configured it so it would only start up when I initialized it, but I recently had some computer problems and now it automatically starts up and I can't figure out what I did before. Can someone help me?

 

No, it's not in the startup folder, but when you go to Windows Task Manager, it's listed as one of the processes running when I first start it up and automatically starts up. I'm having serious problems right now with my computer with too many programs automatically starting up and I'm just trying to work with each one to configure it to start up only when I initialize it.

 

Thanks for any help you can provide!

The only other place it could be is in the registry.

If you have Windows XP (or higher) this is easy.

Click Start -> Run -> type MSCONFIG and hit OK. go to the Startup tab and uncheck Macro Express

 

If not, you can manually go to the registry startup keys at these 2 locations:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Check your option for startup. However all this does is put a shortcut in your startup folder. So if it's not in teh All Users or personal user startup folder some custom startup has been created for it. MSConfig can help you find where that is.
