I want to disable AVG from automatically running when I startup my XP Pro PC. I found the following on this forum, and need to know if it is correct. Is there anything else I need to do to keep AVG 8.5 from running on startup?

Taking AVG out of the startup:
start/run, type msconfig
services tab, uncheck AVG free E-mail scanner and AVG Free WatchDog
startup tab, uncheck avgtray
reboot
x out of configuration utility when it asks.

Please refrain from carrying out multiple postings!. You won't obtain an answer to your query any faster. You've posted in both AVG 8.5 & 9.0. You can't use both on the same system so which one are you using & I'll then delete the incorrect posting?.

AVG Technologies wouldn't agree with not running AVG @ start up so if you follow the user rhhardin proposal it's @ your own risk.
