I have noticed recently that some programs I have in my task bar are starting without my input. They are open when I click on the Icon.

Not a worry, but I am curious as to how this may be possible.?

Do you mean that if you hover over the taskbar icon it shows that the app/program is already open before you click on it?

BH's W10 desktop does it all the time, not from the taskbar, in the middle of what ever she might be doing. ctr/alt/delete does not interrupt the stupid little blue circle from rotating on a blank screen. Now just let the thing do whatever it's doing and come back much, much later.

After returning we find a little white box at top left of screen, "program is not responding", wait or cancel, what effing program !!!, cancel and the main screen is back.

Think she likes W7 somehow.

ps. the other times I switched off at wall, ("yes I know, that's not good" and switched back on after the drive has had time to rest, seemed to right itself.

lurks.

This is happening when I haven't had the program open. I hope that makes it clearer.

If you don't wont them to be there, close them, then remove them from the startup list.

So, exactly what is it you want to know?

If its a "program" then its in the startup options.

If its a Tile, then depending on which one it could be that live tiles are turned on, or its been told to run/open in the background, so it will show as open, because its actually running. If you disable from running you can still have the tile, but it will be closed.
