    personally, i use processguard.

    someone in another forum was spoutin' off about how everyone should try this startup monitor program. i saw that advanced tool bar was coupled with it as well. they don't give you the option to not install it, but tell you it can be removed in the add/remove programs menu if you don't want it.

    the whole thing looked very suspicious to me......i was just wondering what all of you experts had to say about it! thnx.

    hi, give startupmonitor and startupcontrol a try from mike lin @

    >Startup Control Panel is a nifty control panel applet that allows you to easily configure which programs run when your computer starts.
    >StartupMonitor is a small utility that runs transparently (it doesn't even use a tray icon) and notifies you when any program registers itself to run at system startup.
