Most people that use a computer complain that it takes too long for it to boot up. Here is a quick tip to get your computer to boot faster in less time. When your computer is booting up the only thing stopping it from going straight to the desktop are the programs it has been told to startup when the computer is turned on or starts up. Many of these programs are important but there are also many unnecessary .exe files and programs that don’t need to be running. Many of these will not cause any problems even when they are disabled.
Easy as 1-2-3
Once your computer is booted up and you are on the desktop, press the Windows Key + R and type “msconfig” (without quotes).
First thing to do is go to the “Services” tab. Then hide all Microsoft services and click the “status” header at the top. Most all of the services that you see running are important but check and disable miscellaneous toolbars and other things that you dont need running. The services tab usually does not have anything you need to disable but checking to be sure is a good idea.
Next, click the “Startup” tab. You will see items like various updaters, messengers, media services, etc. These can be unchecked meaning disabled. Disabling the small unneeded programs from starting will get you to your desktop many times faster and will allow the computer to run faster. If you made a mistake and disabled one that you need then you just re-check the box and “enable” it again.
