Thanks for the answer!
Yes, I got that he was writing in java, but I'm not able.
If there is a code to paste and copy in a notepad and to save in .cod - I'm able to do it
Any way, I have 3rd part apps as the Oxford Concise dictionary, and IM app for skype which I don't want to start any time I reboot the phone.

I've already searched. Thay haven't any option to disable the autorun.
I'm sure they run on sturt up, because pressing th BB menu button I see some of them, others I can see in advanced oprion -> apps. They appare in bold text

Here's a post describing why some apps are bold in the application list
I don't know of any other way to disable the apps if it's not an option in the app.

This link can't help me.
But isn't anyone else in the forum that can help ?
FWIW -- You have been getting assistance from one of the best on this forum, IMHO. What is missing is a better description from you (including many details that we can't determine) about what exactly is going on.The fact that an app appears in bold in the app list is irrelevant. There is nothing about the device itself that prevents auto-run of any apps -- indeed, I've never seen an app that auto-runs (except for the mandatory minimum apps that must always be running). And, as the very first link you receive states, there indeed is no way to, from an OS level, prevent an app from starting if it is destined to do so. So, it is up to those two apps you quoted to not auto-run...and you need to contact those developers about that as you have discovered no way to disable that.

Thanks sdgardne too.
It means that I'll take my storm with that apps running at the start up.
It's important to know that there is no solution, so I stop to search.
Some time NO is better than MAYBE

I have a similar problem. Two apps (Funambol Sync, and TheMissingSync) always start up in background, even after a battery-pull. That's what I consider auto-run. In Windows, for instance, there are places to look to find out what apps will be automatically run when the OS starts up. What I'm gathering from this thread is that there is no similar place to look in the BB OS. Is that right? Each app controls for itself whether it runs on startup or not? If so, that's a pain, 'cause neither of these has an option to control that behavior. I would just expect that most OSs would have a central place that, on startup, has a list of apps to be run, in addition to those the OS developers set as "standard". And the user can go and look at that list, and remove unwanted apps from the list.
So, the punch line here seems to be:
"No, BB does not have that sort of place or option. Each app is completely in control of its own autorun status, so if it has no 'off' option, you're stuck."
