I recently installed Adobe Photoshop CC 2015 and it auto-starts when I boot or re-start Windows 10 Anniversary OS. Is it a Windows problem or a Photoshop problem. My old Photoshop 7 never did this.

  • I have checked WinPatrol and can't seem to find it in the start-up program list.
  • I don't see anything in the Photoshop options either.

Any suggestions? Anybody else have the same problem?

  • Try opening 'run' (press Win+R) and entering shell:startup. This takes you to a folder that contains shortcuts to programs that are automatically started after logging in. Check if there's a shortcut to Photoshop in there. – cascer1 Oct 5 '16 at 12:36

Autoruns is a free tool from SysInternals (now part of Microsoft) that shows virtually everything that starts automatically (e.g. in the Startup folder, from the Registry Run and RunOnce keys etc.). Autoruns also allows you to temporarily disable or completely remove an entry, and you can search for entries by name, publisher, path etc.
