Tip of the monthControlling applications that run at startup of your computer
Some programs when being installed give you the option of allowing it to run at startup. Other programs (especially some free ones) are quite aggressive about configuring themselves to start automatically. Programs running in the background when your computer starts can cause a great slowdown on your pc. Some programs should be set to run automatically – examples are your anti-virus software, mouse or other input device software, and a few critical functions needed for your Windows Operating System.To stop some of these applications from starting automatically, click on the menu of the program under “Preferences” or “Tools” or “Options”. Every programs is different. If you don’t find the option, try the following: Click the start button (or wheel) and in the text box above it, type: msconfig. This should open your PC’s System Configuration program. Click on the Start up tab. Uncheck anything that you don’t want to start up. If you don’t recognize the program, leave it checked. One other suggestion – do NOT uncheck a lot of programs at the same time. Do a few and restart your computer to make sure you don’t have any issues. Make a note of what you have unchecked. If you do too many at once and you have some issues, it would be too difficult to tell which “unchecked” program is causing the problem.
