Hey All!
I came across this site while I ws doing a search for programs I could eliminate from my Startup Menu. I'm not that computer savy, but I try to solve most of problems on my own by spending lots of time searching for info. It looks like I found a great site to help me out. I look forward to learning lots from all you experts! :thumbsup:

You have probably found good use for the StartupTab here, but a word of advice- - -if you are not completely sure whether an entry can be safely removed or not, ask our Members before deleting it.
Welcome to BC!

Better to ask questions than face a computer that doesn't work.
Some applications will, in order to speed up launching, include a part of themselves in the startup file. Media players and office suites are examples of applications that, unless you use them constantly off and on all day, can be deleted if you are willing to add a few moments to launching them.

John
