How can i stop these programs from starting becuase there is one program that always starts and it looks like a orange heart beat like zig zag and i want to stop this as it slows down my computer significantly. is there an option to stop prgrams running from start up of windows
Firstly, look in the startup menu, (Start-All Programs - Startup), identify if the program concerned is there, if so right click and select delete. If the prog is not there use a combination of Ctrl-Alt-Del keys which will bring up the Windows Task Manager and select the tab 'Processes'. This lists all the apps and Windows processes that are running at that time. If you can identify the process then simply delete it from the list. A VERY LARGE WARNING HERE!! Many of the processes listed are essential to the running and stability of Windows, so PLEASE do not delete items at random as this may well crash your system with possible fatal consequences. Hope this is helpful.
