I have downloaden autoruns from sysinternal and allthough i have read that it is a good program to decide wich programs should be allowed to startup or not i don't understand it as there is so many checkboxes to un/check.
How do i know wich one i should un/check or not.
All i want is just make a fast startup of my pc and no junk to start wich only does infect my speed en my internal memory loads.

Anybody got good tips.

Thanks in advance.

One good way is to check each entry against the BC Start-up Database ("Startup Programs" at the top of the screen), which provides guidance as to which programmes or applications are optional, needed, or unneeded. You can certainly post about items that you cannot find information about in the database or by searching the Web.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

Depending on your skill level, the Sysinternals ap may or may not be the best one for you to use to regulate your start menu.

Unless you can identify the startup item it is many times risky to disable it.

Try using Startup Inspector to accomplish this because it identifies the startup by program in the lower right pane after you highlight it in the upper right pane.

Startup Inspector

And try Startup Monitor on the same page. It notifies you and requires your permission whan an item tries to be added to the start menu.

I agree with Enthusiast. I love the Sysinternals program, but it's just too much for ordinary use.

I use the free StartupCPL available here: http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml

It's much easier to use - and comes in 2 versions. One that will install a Startup icon in your Control Panel - and a standalone program that you can install anywhere you want (even on a floppy or a thumb drive).
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.

If you have Spybot Search & Destroy installed, you can use its "System Startup" Tool. It also provides information on each startup entry. The check/uncheck option is available to include/exclude the item from startup. Also, its "Tea Timer" process notifies you whenever a program tries to include itself in the startup, and gives you the option to allow/prevent.
