How to disable/enable Microsoft Windows startup programs

In this guide I will show you how to enable or disable startup programs in Microsoft Windows. Disabling startup programs can help your computer boot up faster and remove some of that garbage that clusters your desktop when you first boot up your computer.

In Windows go to Start and click Run. In the Run box type "msconfig". You will now get a new window that opens up like below,


Click the "Startup" tab. In this tab you will get a list of programs that will launch when Windows starts up. The more programs that start up, the slower your machine will be. You can speed up your computer boot process by disabling unnecessary programs. To disable a program, uncheck the box next to the program you wish to not startup. Some examples of unnecessary programs are Itunes, Google Talk, Skype, software updater programs or any other programs that you don't wish to be started when Windows opens.

Alternatively, you can enable certain programs to startup when Windows boots. Just check the box next to the program you wish to startup.

Make sure to hit the "apply" button once you are done!

I hope this article was informative.

How to disable the Windows XP Splash Screen / logo at startup ?
To disable the Windows XP splash screen (logo) at startup, and to see the list of drivers loading at startup, follow these steps:
Click Start, Run and type MSCONFIG
Click the Boot.ini tab
Under Operating Systems section, select the appropriate entry and then enable the /SOS switch in the Boot Options section below
Click OK and close MSCONFIG utility.
The corresponding entry in the Boot.ini file is automatically added. Example given below:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(5)\WINDOWS="XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(5)\WINDOWS="XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /sos
The /sos parameter displays the names of the drivers as they load during the boot process. Use when startup fails (while loading drivers) to determine which driver is failing to load. See Boot Parameter Reference for more information.
Also see /noguiboot parameter, which can also disable the splash screen.

How do I change the default program on my startup. Microsoft updated it to their media center. And how do I change my starup programs. windows XP

You can check, remove or disable your system start-up programs with Autoruns from Sysinternals. To change a specific startup program (ie a media player) with something more suitable for your needs you should check the program's configuration to look for a "run at the startup" sort of option.

My computer take a long time to start, it seem to be running serveral programs during start up. How do i fix this problem? windows xp home edition

the best way is to click start then run, then type msconfig and press ok and you will see a box appear.

Click on the startup tab along the top and all the things in the list that are ticked are running when you start up.

Check the name of each ticked item to make sure you know what it is is and if you dont need it in startup untick it. Things like itunes, adobe speed reader, quick time task etc arent needed at startup and can be opened just the same by double clicking the program as usual when needed.

Then repeat this process, enabling things one by one until you locate the program that is interferring with hybernation.
