    When I start up Windows, it takes quite a long time for it to settle down - when I open task manager (alt,ctrl,del) there are loads of unneccessary things running. I can end them all (except explorer) and my Pc still functions properly.
    Is there a way I can stop them from starting at...startup?
    They are not really a problem, but I think they might be causing it to run slower than it could be going? am i right or wrong?


    Thanks

    Hi kwill

    Go to start\run type in msconfig click startup tab and untick the ones you do not want to run at startup

    use this link to help you decide :-

    ALSO

    If you post your startup list we may be able to spot something

    Please post your startup list by doing the following :-

    Please go here and download startuplist 1.51 :-

    Unzip the zipfile
    Double click the exe file
