    I don't think SSM will do it, unless others know differently, but if you
    had Win Patrol on your machine you could Disable/Enable your Start up
    Apps. at will, with two clicks.

    Some processes might be getting started BEFORE SSM starts. For example, svchost.exe, service.exe, winlogon.exe etc.

    In case you have some *blocked* applications which start before SSM...

    1- On Preferences menu, click Options tab

    2- On Options menu, click Applications line

    3- Put a check mark in "Kill running Blocked processes when enabling Application Rules." Henceforth, SSM will terminate those running Blocked processes on its start.

    If the above doesn't get the job done, SSM's Support forum is very helpful & has MUCH smarter dudes than me.:blink:

    Is this the full or free version of SSM? What executables are these? Are they services or another part of windows? Depending on what they are and where they autostart from, it might be better to address them at their autostart entries. If they're started as windows services and are unnecessary, it's better to disable them than to try to block the processes.

    To disable them, I suggest using Autoruns by the SysInternals subsidiary of Microsoft Corp. Superb. Safe. Easy to use. Works great!
