Disable Startup Programs in Windows to Speedup Your Windows PC

I heard many people complaining about their slow PC .Generally, the problem is that their Desktop takes a lot of time to load at windows startup. They have to wait for a long before the system is ready.You might experience that your PC was much faster when you installed a fresh copy Windows, but then it starts taking more and more time to start.Well, the reason behind this slow start is bunch of startup programs that automatically start with load of windows.

When you install a new program on your system,some programs automatically add themselves in the list of startup Items.So each time you turn on your PC and your windows starts ,such programs also start running and that’s why you have to wait for a long time before you can use your system.
You can easily disable these startup programs so that they do not start automatically at windows startup. 

For Windows XP and Windows 7 Users:

  • Go to Run (Win Key+R) and type msconfig and hit ok.
msconfig run command-disable startup Programs
  • Next,Navigate to Startup Tab and You will see list of all programs that start automatically with Windows.Uncheck the programs that you do not want to load at Windows startup.

  • Open Task Manager and click on the Startup tab.Select the Program you want to stop starting at windows startup and Click Disable.
