Okay!!! There are some programs that auto start without your permission and to be honest to you, that sucks.
Some few months back, I installed a software on my PC to help me access my Android files without root access. The app was going fine till it starts auto-installing apps without my permission and it auto-starts when I plug my phone to my PC…
Well, I do love the software because it does what it is meant for and I hate it at the same time because it does what not required of.
Okay, I decided to turn it off from autorun-ing on startup. How I did it? you will know in some few paragraphs down.
