Remove .exe Startup

I need a script that will remove the Winzip Update Notifier from Startup on Windows machines. Does an existing script exist ?

  • Thx Desktop Jockey but I'm actually trying to delete the entry for "Startup". The Winzip Notifier is there which is different from the update checker. Also, it is not in the Registry - mafflitto 3 years ago
  • Then I would try something like this in a bat:
    DEL C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp\FILENAME.exe /F
    You may need to kill the notifier task before deleting with this:
    taskkill /F /IM FILENAME.exe - Desktop Jockey 3 years ago

This should get you going in the right direction.

Also You can check if there is an entry under:

- Pre-Windows 8
Run MSCONFIG and select the 'Startup' tab.

- Windows 8 and up:
Run Task Manager and select the 'Startup' tab. 

That tells you where processes are set to start up.
