Hello- Assuming you are using WinXP or Higher, you need to go to "Start" then 'Run'. A window will appear where you will type in 'msconfig'. The 'System Configuration' window will open. Click on the 'startup' tab. Deselect the items in your system tray that you DO NOT want to start up only. Click 'apply'. You will be prompted to 'restart'. Click 'yes' to restart. Once the computer is rebooted, you will get a message stating that you've made changes. Check the box so that you wont see the message again.

How do i turn off safemode

Shut off the computer and restart. If you get a startup screen, select normal startup. If it always wants to startup in safe mode you may need to remove a recently installed device or program. There is probably a issue with one of the drivers

Increase the speed of computer

The speed of computers depend on several things.
In your case >>>>
1. Check the hard disk ... Go to My Computer >>> Right click on C: >>> Properties >>> Disk Cleanup (to remove useless files) ... Again from Properties >>> Tools >>> Check Now >>> Tick on ( Automatically fix file system errors & Scan for attempt recovery of bad sectors) >>> Start >>> The computer will schedule the scan to the next start up, so restart the computer ;) ..... After finishing the scan go again to C: >>> Properties >>> Tools >>> Defragment Now >>> a new window will appear , click on Defragment button ...
By the way make sure that the hard disk isn't full. If it's , try to move some personal files to another place such as D: or burn them on CDs , try to remove useless programs, Start >>> Control Panel >>> Add or Remove Programs ...
2. 256MB of ram is quiet slow reallly at least 1 GB would help your computer loads. You just need to stop some unnecessary programs working ( Be careful the following steps maybe harmful to your computer ( If try to change the setting ), so don't change the setting of the system)... Start >>> Run >>> Write ( msconfig ) >>> Ok >>> A new window will appear ( be careful here DON'T TRY TO CHANGE OR EDIT ANY SYSTEM OR BOOT FILES OR SETTINGS UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO) >>> Click on Startup ( This window shows the programs, which are running in the startup) >>> Remove ticks from the programs, WHICH YOU KNOW THEM, to stop them running in the startup ( this step is really useful to speed the computer up) ... By the way the computer will ask you (after restarting) about that change in the startup, just press ok and tick on (Don't ask me this question again).
3.Increasing the performance of the computer ... Right click on My Computer >>> Properties >>> Advance >>> ( Performance field) Setting >>> Here you can increase the performance by choosing (Adjust for best performance) and you can leave some visual effects if you like ( this step isn't harmful,but don't go to Advanced if you haven't experienced it)...
By the way, sometimes, having two virus protection together makes the computer works like a turtle :)
You should Only have and only need ONE virus protection installed on your PC.
You can click start-----click run-----type msconfig------click startup tabs,then you can uncheck programes that dont need to run at startup. Then click ok to exist..And you also can go visit to download a speedup software.

How to clean up start up processes

Questions about optimize start up:
How to remove program from start up?
My computer boots very slow? How do I clean up start up processes?
Windows startup very slow, how to fix it?

Why clean up start up processes?
Windows Startup program will load the default programs or processes you add to your computer. The test result shows a new system only boot within 30 seconds. As you install antivirus program or other applications, it becomes very slow. Sometimes, the startup gets bloated not due to your computer behaviors. Malicious software is prone to add useless processes on startup without your known. You are not aware that your computer becomes more and more slow until serious computer problem occurs. Don’t ignore a slow start up, it is the root of Blue Screen and computer freezing.

How to clean up start up processes?
The first thing you should do is to remove spyware or adware from your computer. I prefer to AVG, it is a free anti-virus program. If you want to clean virus completely, you need boot in safe mode and disconnect your Internet.

Hok is a professor with over ten year’s computer experience. He suggest us use ErrorFix. This is a pc optimize tool which can clean up system registry entries, useless program, start up processes and junk files. With this program, your computer will be obviously improved. Just a few clicks, you can remove processes that slow your computer.

What’s more to speed up your computer?
Do not download Peer-to-Peer Download Software! Maybe you are using some software such like YouTube Downloader. These are probably some of the least likely contenders for system-slowdown but they are popular on the internet. Those kinds of program can take up memory space and damage your computer. Also they can automatically add itself as your start up.

Boot to Safe Mode, by pressing F8 during boot. Then try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

Remove all USB attached devices like drives.
You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode).

Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore.
XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.
Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.

Few days ago my laptop toshiba satelite occur problem of stucking cursor at the middle of working. I open audio music, after few second the computer and cursor are stucking. Please help me

Its either a problem with your touch pad driver, or more probably as it sounds like your computer is freezing momentarily, you've got too many programs open, and your system can't handle it, this is more probable because opening music takes a fair bit of memory. Try exiting some programs your task bar, if you take unused programs off startup you'll find your computer is much more able to manage tasks. To remove programs off startup, type "msconfig.exe" without quotes into the start search bar and press enter, select the selective startup check box then go to the startup tab and untick all the things you don't want or need to startup. Just as a precaution do not disable anything, you don't know. especially not the Microsoft Windows operating system.

This file runs every time the computer is turned on and slows it down. Is there a way to remove it? I did remove it one time but can't remember what I did.

You need to specify what "file" runs every time the computer restarts.
Assuming you have Windows XP, you should check first in your "Startup" folder (Go to START -> PROGRAMS -> STARTUP). The "file" that runs every time the computer is turned on should be there. If it's not, please report back fro further assistance.
