If you are running Windows XP you can disable programs at startup by doing this:
1 - Go start menu
2 - Click on Run and key "msconfig" (without the brackets)and press "Enter"
3 - The System Configuration Utility Window will appear. Click on the Start up Tab to disable programs.
Is there an easy way to disable some programs and processes that load with Windows? I have over 50 running, probably eating up my RAM. I don't want to remove programs, just disable some of them.
Also, on a performance issue, my IE browser started hanging a little bit about 2 weeks ago. I have to click 2-3 times on a link sometimes to get it going! I scanned with AVG and Adaware, nothing came up. SpyBot only found DSO Exploits, 5 Registry changes. Didn't mess with those. Any ideas? Should I use System Restore since I know the problem started about 2 weeks ago? What changes should I expect?
Thank you so much.
