Alternatively, you can run the 'msconfig.exe' in the 'start' pop-up menu! That lets you choose which programs are to run on start-up.
If you're gonna do that, then leave systray.exe (system tray) and a firewall, if you have one. Then restart your computer before logging into a potentially heated DDM.
I pretty much stick to a ritual before going online on Sunday nights!
1. clean up the hard drive with whatever utilities you normally use eg disk cleanup or Easy Cleaner
2. run error-check and defragment your drive a couple of hours previous to the DDM
3. place the addons folder to a place where TM won't try to read it. Desktop is good enough for convenience.
4. make sure 'systray' and a firewall are ticked in the msconfig then reboot.
