ok, i know we have these programs that load when windows has loggon on (turned on and loaded windows) you get a list of programs that it starts up.
mine take like 30 - 45 seconds to do the process so i was wondering if there are startup programs that i can turn off to make my PC load up faster. in the bottom right side of taskbar i have a list of programs of whatever they are listed there

to make this a little easier what startup programs are neccesary and which ones can i stop in the starup to make it load quicker?

Good question. And as a matter of fact Izzy, Bleeping Computer now has a detailed Startup Database. :thumbsup: They range from the neccessary to the evil such as viruses, trojans etc. Have a look around.

Make a list of them and then search for them here at BC:


If you have Spybot, you can use it to change your startup applications.
