When I start my computer, either Microsoft Excel or Word starts automatically with an empty page. I think it's the program I've opened last. I've removed and reïnstalled Office completely, this didn't help.
Places I've checked:
- Task Manager > Startup
- These folders on my computer:
%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup %HOMEPATH%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
- These places in the registry:
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
Nowhere is there any trace of Excel or Word. Still, when I start my computer, Excel/Word does too. How can I stop this from happening without removing Office?
The version is Office ProPlus from Office 365.
Update: @SavGuard, pointed me to autoruns.exe from sysinternal tools. It found the following autorun entry:
ClickToRunSvc Microsoft Office Click-to-Run Service: Manages resource coordination, background streaming, and system integration of Microsoft Office products and their related updates. This service is required to run during the use of any Microsoft Office program, during initial streaming installation and all subsequent updates. Microsoft Corporation c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\clicktorun\officeclicktorun.exe 2019-06-26 02:28
I've disabled this and rebooted, but this didn't fix the problem.
