I am using Windows XP SP 2 in my PC. Now my PC became very slow when it starts. So I decide to unload few programs from my start-up list. There I found three entries and I don’t know if I should uncheck them from start-up list or not. Does this unstable my O.S.? And what these programs actually do?
Name and location of those files are given below:-
“C:\WINDOWS\ime\IMJP8_1\IMJPMIG.EXE” /Spoil /RemAdvDef /Migration32
There are lots of programs in quick launch. How could I remove them?

Use the "startup List" tab @ this forum; enter 'TINTSETP.EXE'; Description: 'Part of Microsoft's Input Message Editor (IME) for translating Japanese/Chinese text in IE, Outlook and Word'

Deleting 'quick launch' items: right-click icon; select 'delete' from the popup menu.

How do you get to your "startup list"? If you're using "msconfig" please be advised that this is designed as a diagnostic tool and shouldn't be used to permanently make changes to your startups.

There's several free applications out there that will do this easily. For starters, I'd suggest this one: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx
Download the standalone version, unzip it and double click on the icon to run it. Remove the check marks to disable the items from starting.

BUT, as rf6647 has stated, be sure to check in the Startup List at the top of the forum before disabling the items.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Hi novo,

I am not sure if you are still reading this post. You didn't ask it but it relates to your problem. Besides removing unneeded startup items there are a couple of things you can do to speed up the boot time:

1. Use Disk Cleanup to empty IE cache and Temp folders.
2. Important: Use Windows disk defragmentation utility to defragment your drive from time to time.
3. Empty system information volume and make a new restore point by tuning off System Restore on all drives and turning it on again.

If you wanted I provide you more information and instruction.
