About a month ago, we saw how we can increase system performance by adjusting the visual effects of Windows Vista. Another means of increasing performance a system running Windows VistaIt is reducing startup time of the system. Some applications are installed, they have processes that are set to run at startup (startup), whether the application is used or not. This slows down the charging time and decreases the system performance. Any running process uses RAM.
So to speed up the startup of the operating system and increase system performance, we need to prevent these unwanted processes running. Here's how we can eliminate unwanted process from Startup:
1. Click the button Start and type msconfig in the search bar, then press Enter.
2. If UAC will appear, click "Continue" and in panel System ConfigurationGo to tab Startup.
3. Uncheck the box next process (column "Startup Item") that are not used regularly and which are not vital to the operating system at startup. (Click on image below.)
Some popular processes that can be removed from that list: GoogleToolbarNotifier, QuickTime, iTunes, Adobe Photo Downloader, BitTorrent DNA, Nero Home, Mobile Me, Google Update, GTalk, MSN, Yahoo, Nero BackItUp, Winamp Agent PC Suite (for various mobile phones) and the list goes on. These are just some examples of processes cleared my list Startup Item.
4. After you uncheck these processes, press "Apply"And"OK".
Changes made in System Configuration will be valid after the first restart of the computer. Processes that have been unchecked from Startup will no longer run automatically when the operating system is started. Of course, you can launch unchecked applications from the list of programs via Start -> All Programs.
* For operating systems Windows XP, this startup tweak is very similar. You can open "System Configuration ”from Start -> Run -> type“ msconfig ”, press Enter and follow the steps above for Windows Vista.
