    Asus Live Update Utility - Preventing Auto Startup?

    I have a utility called Asus Live Update on my notebook. It launches itself automatically at startup and sits in my taskbar.

    I would like to launch it manually, and I do not want it to launch at startup.

    The problem is that this app doesn’t have any configuration or settings feature.

    How can I prevent it from starting up? Is there a manual method?

    Thanks.

    msconfig??? on the startup tab.....uncheck it, if its there.

    or

    run services.msc .look for it there. set startup type to "disabled" and stop the service........

    Look for ALU.exe in msconfig, that's the utility I believe.

    Hello everyone, I'm from Vietnam. I also have this problem.
    But I looked carefully at msconfig, services.msc and there is no ASUS Live Update or ALU.exe to set the start up off. What can i do???

    If you need to stop the app from auto-starting, CCleaner works well

    Welcome to TechIMO!
    Is it in the Start Folder, under the Start Button/Programs/Start Up?

    Or uninstall Asus Live Update.
    I can't think of a more useless program,

    I like to do my own updates, not run a program all the time that will probably only be used 2 or 3 times, in the motherboards lifetime.
    Maybe a few more times, if it is for a video card.

    My last new desktop is 9 years old, and it has never had an update available, and never will (Abit)
    My video card had 1 update when it was new, and will never have another available. (Sapphire AGP)
