Does anyone know how to delete the ever incresing long list of startup programs that you dont need or dont want to start up when the computer boots up. I have untick all the programs that I dont want to startup but the list is so long of unnecessary prog. I am using win xp sp2. Any help would be appreciated.
There is no way to remove the list as far as I know, the way I do it is to remove everything that isnt a windows process, or your AV or Firewall. Then take a look on one of the many processes websites and find out what windows ones you can get rid of. Computer boot speed is something you have to play with really. The only other way is a clean XP install.
You just remove the tick in the above under startup tab. It does not Delete the Program. It just stops it from Starting at Boot, if you find you need it after just put the tick back int the box. After a reboot a box pops up, put a tick in the little box bottom left before closing it or it will be there next time you start
