1. Start the program from your Desktop or Start Menu>Programs>Windows
Startup Inspector

2. Once the program has started it will load the programs in your windows'
startup list automatically. (from Registry and Startup Folders)

3. Press the CONSULT button. This feature requires an Internet connection,
make sure you have Internet access and allow this program to pass your
firewall. Note: this program is not a spyware, it only retrieves info
it does not send any info.

4. Once Consultation process is complete, you will notice comments appears
aside of each program, and at the bottom of the screen shows an expanded
information of each selected program.

5. Go through each program, check if it is required by its rating.
Rating 1 are definately not welcome, remove it, it is spyware, adware
or even virus.
Rating 2 are not required programs, they are not worth to
run on startup.
Rating 3 are program provides certain feature, but if you
don't use it or rarely use it, why not remove it and you can always start
it manually.
Rating 4 are usually system programs, you should leave it along.

6. Remove the program from startup list, just Uncheck the program, by click
the square box in front of each program.

7. Now finish by press Apply button.

8. Exit Startup Inspector for Windows and Restart windows.
