    goto start>programs>startup

    is it there? if so, delete it

    if not, then go start>run>"msconfig">startup

    find the exe and untick the box next to it
    <insert signature here>

    You could use the handy Startup tool attached also...

    amazingly enough vivitron, but my winword was not in both of those places, i think i have now discovered something else, and that is that winword stays started after i have used it and closed it, is that what should happen?

    There might be option to rule out, "Start Winwhatever with Windows"
    Also, it may not be named after itself on the startup config, --> check the program path.

    One might look into registry also.

    I see red when apps too that, its a hassle.

    Spoiler: Show

    WinWord may be in Startup by default and will even attempt internet access on recent versions which is fkin stupid. I used Sygate for a permanent block. Also have you tried the Startup tool I ul up above, it really makes it simple...
