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..

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
