Slow PC.......................

  Dirty Dick 23:15 21 Jan 2004

My PC is going very slow, and I seem to have a lot of icons open in the Task Bar!! (Next to the clock !!!). A friend said to remove some of these and it may help. How do I do that?

what os? depending on which type start/run/msconfig and untick the ones you dont want to run at start up.

Thanks Johnny, but I'm running AVG which is up to date, not had a virus for some time

If I run Start/Run/Msconfig and uncheck some of the ticks, whenn I re-boot, it says I am running in daiagnostic mode and to return to NORMAL, which re-checks the programs,and I'm back to page 1. Very frustrating !!!!

If you use msconfig to disable startup items it will give you that dialog when you restart---click ok to accept the changes. you should then find that the items you dont want to run wont.
