How do I stop Slimserver from automatically coming on when I boot up my computer? I thought during install I disabled this feature but apparently not and now cannot figure out how to disable.

Thanks in advance.

I waited for someone else to answer this question because I do several things on my PC that change the way this is handled. Therefore I don't exactly know how it's normally handled, but I'll give it a shot.

Go to Start - Run...

Type "msconfig".

Go to the "Services" tab.

Find SlimServer.

Uncheck it.

It will now no longer start up when you boot up.

The big question is, will it start up when you want it to, i.e. when you manually start SlimServer? I think it will, but I'm not sure.

The reason I'm not sure is that I have several programs on my PC that prevent other programs from putting items in startup. But these fool Windows into believing they are in the startup list, even though they don't start, so starting them manually isn't a problem. The programs are Spybot Search & Destroy TeaTimer:

http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

and StartupMonitor:

http://www.mlin.net/StartupMonitor.shtml

If you can't get SlimServer to start at all anymore, you can force it to start by typing "services.msc" into the Start - Run... field. Find SlimServer, right-click and select Start.

Thanks for the spyware links!

Someone loaded ipod software onto my pc that is RELENTLESS in starting itself.

In that case, an app that can stop running processes
and remove them from your start list:

Although Mark Russonovich at SysInternals has this:

I thought Startup monitor might kill it (ItunesHelper.exe 4,700k), but haven't had time to try anything other than run>msconfig which didn't work in win2kpro. Also, I get denied in task manager.

I remember when all the tutorials told you how to shut down processes to get accurate rips and burns for trading :)

There's a beta search and destroy for cell phones(!), i noticed in your link.

Thanks I tried it and all seemed well until I went to start SlimServer. It appeared to start but I couldn't get it to open or run so I went back to it starting when I boot up and then just tuen it off manually.

StartupMonitor and TeaTimer only disable processes
which insert themselves into the startup list.
Once they're already there, I use those products
in my second link. CodeStuff Starter is nice and
simple but doesn't display everything. Autoruns
will display *absolutely* everything, including
stuff you really should not disable...

Hmm, I may have given you some bad advice.

My system is set up as follows:

services.msc: SlimServer appears and is set to
"Automatic"

msconfig: SlimServer appears and is enabled.

Check the msconfig "Startup" tab. SlimServer
doesn't appear here for me - is it in there for
you? If it is, uncheck it. As long as SlimServer
is in services.msc, set to automatic, and checked
in msconfig you should be able to start it.

It may not be in the msconfig "Startup" tab.
Download one of the programs I linked to,
CodeStuff Starter:

Uncheck SlimServer in your Startup tab.
