I've searched the Internet and find no answer, so I turn to the geniuses at Bellgab. I'm running a Win10 laptop and have a bunch of Adobe programs installed (CS5.5). I've used this computer for about 9-months. Starting last week, whenever the computer starts up, Adobe Bridge launches. I had not changed anything - but there was a big Microsoft "upgrade" at about this time.  I've gone into Task Manager/Startup and disabled everything with Adobe in it.  Bridge still starts. While some of the older versions of Bridge had an "Open on Startup" check box in Preferences, this version does not.
How do I stop Bridge from opening on startup?

Now take this suggestion with a grain of salt since I'm searching my memory for whether it works (it mightn't even be applicable for this program), and I don't have any experience with Win 10. And be careful with what you do because it might break other things...

In task manager there's a tab called services (or you can search for it and it'll come up). Try and view the non task manager version since the descriptions are more in depth.
It'll list the names of services, a description of what they do, their status (ie are the running or not), and their startup type. Look for the Adobe ones, and there might be one for Adobe Bridge. Right click it, go to properties and there'll be a dialogue box.
If the service is running you can stop it here, and you can also change the startup type (automatic, manual, disabled). Select your desired option and apply.

Now having done you this might've broken functions of Adobe and/or when you actually need to run the program you might need to go back into the services list and ensure that it's running.

Maybe wait for someone else to weigh in before trying.  ;)

MV if you read this and disagree with the suggestion, please delete my post so it doesn't mislead others.

Thanks. I went into Services and the only Adobe service running automatically on startup was something called Adobe Active File Monitor. I reset that to manual and rebooted. Bridge still started up.
Thanks for your help. I'm far too busy a man to wait an extra minute and a half for my computer to boot, Bridge to boot, then close out Bridge.

What could possibly go wrong? (Having said that anyone really thinks we have ever stopped doing this? And others aren't?)

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-01-03/amd-soars-after-rival-intel-said-to-reveal-processor-flaw
"All computers with Intel chips from the past 10 years appear to be affected, the report said, and patches to Microsoft Corp.ís Windows and Apple Inc.ís OS X operating systems will be required. The security updates may slow down older machinery by as much as 30 percent, according to The Register."

"But if the error canít be fixed easily in software, it could be necessary to redesign the chip, which can be extremely costly and time consuming."

No wonder the Intel CEO sold $24 million in shares before the announcement.

It would seem the Linux boys are a tad pissed off over the kernel changes they'll have to make
Quote
2) Namespace

   Several people including Linus requested to change the KAISER name.

   We came up with a list of technically correct acronyms:

    User Address Space Separation, prefix uass_

    Forcefully Unmap Complete Kernel With Interrupt Trampolines, prefix fuckwit_

   but we are politically correct people so we settled for

    Kernel Page Table Isolation, prefix kpti_

   Linus, your call :)

I think you probably chose the right name here. The alternatives sound
intriguing, but probably not the right thing to do.

How much of this is considered worth trying to integrate early?
Clearly I'm not taking all of it.

After Trading Places, the CIA had to de-fang the SEC. They got "uppity!"

Vague reference to people I don't know insinuating I know them better than I'm letting on and have a modicum of intel you do not! I'm within' your level of attainment, but only if you act now! Pay no attention to the stressors!

The rumors at the time were that the Pentium III chips had a back door built in.

I laugh but not in a haha way. I'm sure they, and others, been in routers, digital phone switches, chips, and software for a longtime, if not forever. That is a given for me. After all the recent debacles (the whistleblowers, the leaks, the hacks, and embarrassing Congressional testimony and spying)  I'm surprised some of those guys lasted that long.

Lots of conspiracy theories out there about this split. I've also heard a lot of stories in the news about the NSA's inability to retain talent recently competing with some of the so-called 'private sector' (which has deep connections to various agencies and government contracts themselves.)

Backdoor has been there since the Pentium 133 Rev. 2.
