I have borrowed my husbands computer - Dell Inspiron 9300 (another story about mine will be on the forum) a. dont know how to find which windows system it is running b. it is obvious that there is all sorts of stuff going on in the background. Assusming he does a defrag at regualr intervals, can someone tell us how to find out what is loading at startup pleaseu
You will not be deleting 'owt' just stopping it from starting when the PC boots up. As 'onthelimit' says most can be unchecked which should speed up start up and if your husband wants them to start right away, it is a simple matter of just re-checking the program in msconfig.
To find out what exactly is starting up that does not appear in the msconfig or the task manager you need go no further. System internals that's part of Microsoft have software for you to investigate if you so wish>> click here
