I want to know how to keep this program but not have it running in the background all the time, in other words not at start up. I am running Windows 7 on a PC.
Thank you for your help.

@Ruth: APSDaemon.exe is configured to run at startup under the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

There you can remove the "APSDaemon" value, which will stop the process from running at startup. Try it on your own risk.

Please make sure you know how to restore the value in case your system does not work as expected after modifying the Windows registry.
