    Someone once told us to get your puter running faster the running programs "iconned" on your task bar should be "turned off". Well the only way we've figured how to do that is hit Ctrl Alt Del and then click on the programs we want to turn off.

    Sometimes when we do this there are over a dozen listings of RealPlay, and when we "End Task" them, the computer seems to run just a little bit faster. How do all those RealPlays get up there, and how do we stop it?

    Rightclick on the icon near the clock, and choose Preferences, then disable StartCenter.

    Also, go to Run and type MSCONFIG, startup tab
    Uncheck Realplay, apply and restart.
