Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Didn't you get bored one day because of the delay the your PC has once you boot it up until everything is loaded up?
Here are some tips that will get your booting up faster than ever.
First : What causes the delay?
Answer: It's obvious .... start-up applications . every now and then you install a new application , and some applications once it is installed it wants to be launched once the windows start-up for many different reasons , for example an Anti virus [ because it wants to protect your computer once you start it until you shut it down], Audio enhancement software [it wants to enhance your audio output quality or effects] ....etc . And some of those applications are not that necessary to be started once you log in , but you might need it in some rare occasion or some time later , those apps that we want to remove from start-up launch process.
Second: How to identify what is mandatory and what is not?
Answer: Well , that depends on your applications configuration and what amount of apps you have , but for sure do not disable what you don't know and disable what you actually know.
Third: Take Action!
How: follow these steps: [ there are plenty of ways of doing this and this is only one]
1 - download this program from Microsoft Technet website-> Autoruns.
2- Open and start the program.
3- Choose Agree.
4- Click the tap "Logon".
5- Now the listed programs are the autoruns programs [ start-up's program ].
6- Un-check whatever you think no necessary to be launched at logon .
7- Close the program.
*Important Notice: Never uncheck a program you don't know about because you might disable a system core program such as explorer.exe then you won't have a Desktop until you have someone expert to take it back for you.
I hope this will help.
