Google Talk: Prevent from Starting When Windows Starts

Posted July 10, 2007 by Rob Rogers in Instant messaging

By default, the Google Talk application starts when Windows does. If you don’t use Google Talk regularly, you are wasting resources by having it run when you don’t need it. To stop Google Talk from starting when Windows does:


1. Open Google Talk.

2. Click Settings.

3. Make sure that General is selected from the left pane.

4. Uncheck the Start automatically when starting Windows checkbox.

5. Click OK.
