Enable or Disable programs for a startup item to disable it on your next startup. If you've chosen Selective startup on the General tab, you must either choose Normal startup on the General tab or select the startup item’s check box to start it again at startup.
If you suspect an application has been compromised, examine the Command column to review the path to the executable file.
