Hi evrybody,
i am just annoyed of my slow start-up time on my laptop. As soon as i log-in i have to wait ages for all those apps to open and settle down.

Can anyone tell me how i can get rid of those apps to that they dont start on start-up.
also is there any recomended software that will speed up my start up.

start>run> type msconfig click ok select startup tab
and deselect from there what you do not want to run at startup... 18:21 26 Oct 2005

what he said... just be careful not to uncheck any critical system files (If you are using XP it will warn you)

Also, make sure you don't uncheck any anti-virus or firewall software otherwise you will need to manually start these up every time you log in to remain protected

That was the first thing I did after getting new Laptop. Put another 256Mb in it

However the Hard drives are a lot slower than for desktops but going to rectify that next by fitting a new 60Gb drive at over 5000 Rpm the one in now runs at 4200rpm
