Here is a step-by-step guide as follows :
Step 1: First of all, open the Run application on your computer. For this, press the Windows + R keys on your keyboard.
Step 2: Type “services.msc” and then press Ok.
Step 3: In there, right-click on the Microsoft Office Click-to-Run service, and from the options, select “Properties.”
Step 4: In the “General” tab, go to “Startup type” and from the menu, select “Disable.”
Step 5: Now, click “Ok” and restart your computer.
That’s it. Once you have followed the above-mentioned steps, the Office Click-to-Run program will be disabled and won’t run in the background.
There is also a way to remove the program from the computer, which we will cover in a separate guide.
