    I am trying to disable- TkBellExe "realsched.exe -osboot", SpybotSD TeaTimer (removed program) and QuickTime Task qttask.exe - atboottime. Each time I disable (uncheck) they renable themselves. How to I stop them from re enabling themselves?

    the answer lies within (Guru says)....

    your registry (Geek speaks)....

    If you think they persist you should meet iTunes and company - just so that you know.

    Sorry not to be more helpful, but this is more the voice of experience you seek than guru-dom (whatever that is) - Googling removal and the items may prove fruitful - sorry again not to give direct advice.

    Try going into the Quicktime settings through the control panel, under browser plugin
    Uncheck Quick Time system tray icon

    I don't use the other one, you are on your own.

    You don't happen to have AdAware 6.0 Pro do you? If so, the Ad-watch program that is included will allow you to prevent these entries from re-enabling themselves.

    Also, you could delete the keys altogether from the registry here:
    Local Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version and
    Current User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version
    - look in the following folders: Run, RunOnce, RunOnceEx

    Good luck! :)

    For QT, delete the qttask.exe in the
    C:\Program File\Quicktime
    folder, and then remove the startup item in msconfig. It does not hurt the program at all.

    For RP, delete the entire Update_OB folder in
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real
    and the realsched.exe in msconfig. This should also remove the annoying message center from popping up.

    there is a free program called Codestuff Starter, that will let you disable programs at boot without having to delete them, you can also delete them if you like. it also lists processes , that give you more information than task manager. Have a look here http://codestuff.netfirms.com/download.shtml :)

    where are you "unchecking" them?

    You could try using the msconfig utility (start/run/"msconfig")
    You could go into the registry (mentioned in an earlier post)
    You could rename/delete the offending files (as has been mentioned in an earlier post)
    You could use a program like black ice/network ice/etc.. that does application protection and prevent the programs from loading.. (yes, a major kludge but it does work)

    hmm.. be creative.. where there is a will, there is a way..
