Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

How to make you windows log in faster than ever?

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.

My pc is super slow at startup. It takes a long time to boot when you first turn it on.

Start the PC, go to start menu-->run, then type "msconfig".
Look around at the boot and services tabs, and disable some software you know and could live without if it didn;t automatically load.
That should speed booting up. If not, and it is several months ago that you installed WIndows, try to reinstall it.
However, do backup all your data before you do that, everything on your Windows partition will be lost in reinstalling.

Disable the start up features on the wireless, if it has an enable/disable function. This will increase the boot speed, but you will have to manually turn on the wireless or search wireless connections manually. This is a common annoyance, doesn't quite qualify as problem, but there is no win win situation with this. Either you have slow start up or manual wireless.

delayed printing

in your settings, you most likely need to turn off the delay print setting.
You can set printers to hold everything untill a specific time of day to print.
On that particular machine, I am not 100 pecent sure where that setting is. But you should have a menu button to scroll to setting and search for delay print.
You may be able to access it from your computer on printers properties.

The machine doesn't work

Is your load within capacity. See that it is. Press and hold 'spin' & 'dry' for 5 or 6 seconds to unlock controls. Try the machine on a normal cycle once, see if it works.
