However, do not that Google Buzz Desktop is built by a Spanish developer, someone not from Google. The desktop application is based on the Adobe AIR platform. Since the application is built by a Spanish developer, you may spot labels used in some of the icons and buttons to be in Spanish.

An article on Technet help solve my trouble. To stop FortiClient from starting automatically, try the following:

Switch Startup type to Manual.Restart your computer. FortiClient should not be running automatically the next time round. Hope it helps.
