This guide explains you to disable auto-startup apps from task manager window.

It is very important to know which programs or applications are set to auto-launch when the system boots. If any suspicious program is launching after every system restart, then it will not allow you to remove it completely from the infected system. And there is very much chances that it will again repair its files and be active on your system.

Thus, if you have any unwanted program that is restarting even after removing it, then it might have auto-startup enabled. Disabling this will allow you to completely get rid of any unwanted program.

So, here is the steps which you need to follow for disabling the suspicious programs from auto-launch.
