You may have lots of softwares installed on your windows and you may know or not know that the more software are installed on our windows, the more time it will take to boot up.
Many of the programs automatically get started when you turn on your computer, even though those are not needed to boot an operating system.
So what’s the need to allow these programs at the time of startup when it affects the system boot up time?
To solve this problem windows allows us to disable unneeded programs at the time of startup.
In this post I am going to show you how you can disable the unneeded programs at the time of startup. Follow the simple steps below.
For Windows XP
Click Start – Run – type “msconfig.exe” – click Ok
For Windows 7 and Vista
Step 1: Click the windows Start button and type msconfig in the search field.
Step 2: Click on msconfig from the search result.
This opens a window called System Configuration.
Step 3: Go to Startup tab. A list of startup program displays with a check box next to each.
Step 4: To prevent a program from starting up at the time of startup just untick the box next to that program which you no longer want to start at the time of startup.
Step 5: Click Apply and then Ok. The System Configuration dialog box will appear. To apply the changes you need to restart your computer or click on “Exit without restart” if you don’t want to restart.
For Windows 8, 8.1 and 10
Windows 8,8.1 and 10 make this even more simpler to enable or disable startup programs.
Step 1: Right click on windows taskbar and select Task Manager.
