Remove Web Helper from Autostart

How can it remove the autostart of the webhelper? If i do this for example with Tune Up Utilities, its back in the autostart list immediately.

 

Thx

You mean this web helper in settings?

 

You can remove it in no time by using CCleaner or even a Spotify Preferences ( Edit - Preferences).

 

Be positive, use Spotify. :)

I believe Spotify web helper is a separate process that acts as a minimialist web http server. I believe it makes it possible to use the play button and several interactions in the apps. If you remove it I think you will get problem with the web content (apps, play buttons etc.)

Is it normal that this setting reverts to being ON after installing an update?

 

I really don't want any unnessecary stuff running in the background. Surely registering a URI doesn't need a TSR in the background to work. I mean file, mail and even magnet URIs have never needed a separate background process to work for me.

Yes it is, but it's hidden under "advanced settings".

No I do not have it in my advanced settings. Can you tell me in which section should it be?

Re: Remove Web Helper from Autostart

I have the same version as you. Under "edit - advanced settings" you will find "Startup and Window Behaviour". Set it to "No" and it should be ok.
