    [h=3]Disable Programs That Run When I Start Windows[/h]

    [​IMG]Does your PC takes long time to boot when you switch it on? The main reason could be the number of programs that run at system start up. Start up programs automatically loads itself as the system boots up these all are the system. These programs include an icon (not always) in the System Tray in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen - next to the clock. These could be the software icons and some devices like PC suite and Bluetooth. Sometimes many process run at the back ground that we don't want to use and that causes our system to go slow, Many of the process are important but some that you don't want you can disable them to speed up the system.

    Step#1: Go to Run and type msconfig as shown in figure and hit enter.

    Step#2: Click on Services and at the bottom you will see Hide all Microsoft services identify that services that you don't want to run and uncheck the box
    [​IMG]Step#3: then go to Startup and uncheck the processes that you don't want to run at Startup then click on apply and OK and reboot the system to take effect

    It's done now..
