    It is on the startup list. Download any software that can modify the startup items and remove prime 95 from the list. :)

    Or disable the autostart in P95 itself.

    Use the search function in Windows to find prime95 related files and folders. What version of Windows are you on?

    Start Task Manager, make the "command line" column to show up, and go to the folder it runs from, and delete it. It's THAT simple.

    Just some FYI...

    Next time you wish to kill a startup program, service, or something else, you may want to give Autoruns for Windows (part of the SysInternals Suite) a try.
    I use them; and, always, include them in my toolbox of useful utilities.

    Quote from the Autoruns web page:


    Windows IT Pro article by Mark Russinovich titled, "Autoruns - Hunt down autostart programs wherever they hide"

    Channel 9 video on Autoruns and MSConfig
