    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?

    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)
