Most of the time when you install an application, the application likes to automatically start when Windows boots. It does this by adding itself to a registry key.
Here are a few of the startup registry keys:
Usually the program can be found in one of those keys, but sometimes instead it will add itself to the startup folders:
%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup%C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup%
I've tried locking down these locations by adjusting who can edit these, but that makes it really hard to add applications to them that you actually DO want running at Startup. Does anyone have an easier way of blocking applications from adding themselves to Startup in Windows, while at the same time allowing you to add the ones that you like to startup.
Perhaps if we could just block installers from adding to startup that would be best.
I have been opening several attachments which are saved on my computer and trying to save them in various formats. In the process, I must have changed some settings since when I, now, double click on attachments to emails coming in, they ope in "paint" software and not in the normal formats.
How do I regress back to the normal software for opening attachments on emails coming in to me?

Hello, Don't know about you, but about 20 times a day I seems to have to enter my Email for a variety of reasons (and Auto Fill doesn't cut it). Is there a keyboard shortcut (say, 'EM') that I could hit in ANY field regardless of application that would populated my Email, instead of typing it (it's fairly long)? Thanks
