Issue - IE starts when windows loads idea


About a month ago, IE began loading up on it's own when the pc is turned on and reaches windows.

I have not put it in my startup and i don't know of any program I got that has an option for IE to start by itself.

Friend said it may be in my registry somewhere.

Does anyone know a system utility program that could help me stop IE from running automatically? (or ideas as to why it may be happening)

  1. Strange, is it by any chance in your startup group?

    <font color=red> And the sign says "You got to have a membership card to get inside" Huh
    So I got me a pen and paper And I made up my own little sign </font color=red>
  2. do start>run>type in msconfig and hit ok
    go to the startup tab and look for iexplore.exe, uncheck it.

  3. I like <A HREF="" target="_new">Startup Control Panel</A>.
