My computer is becoming a slow starter.
When I take a look at Startup and Services in Msconfig I see that
there is a lot of stuff running that I probably do not need.
Are there any general guidelines about which items can be switched off
without risking to loose any vital functions?
A wealth of information and guidance is provided in the STARTUP LIST, tabbed here at the top of the page. If you have any questions about an item, or need clarification, please don't hesitate to post. Regards, John
