http://www.liberiangeek.net – If you have tons of programs installed on your computer and most of them start up automatically in the background when Windows starts, then sooner or later your PC performance will suffer. Because the more programs that are loaded in Windows, the worse your computer performs.   This brief tutorial will show you how to disable programs that are automatically loaded in Windows every time Windows starts. This is also beneficial because it speeds up your computer and gives you more resources to work with.   When you’re ready, click Start –>  and type ‘msconfig’ in the search box as shown below and select the program from the list above.       2) Uncheck the box next to the program you want to disable from starting up. Once done, click OK.       3) Check the box not to show this message again and click the Restart button.     A rule of thumb to remember is every program with Microsoft name or the Manufacture is Microsoft should be left alone. Other programs are vital to the stability of your system, so pay close attention to the program you want to disable. Also, programs that are disabled can still be opened via Start –> Programs –> and click on the program name to open it.   Join the forum discussion on this post — (1) Posts (HowTos)
