Windows Startup is usually something we all want to be fast. Imagine how bad it feels when we have to see that screen (in the photo) for even a minute. While there are several ways to improve your startup, one of them is to reduce the Programs that start with your computer. Here is simple way to turn off unwanted Startup Programs of Windows

1. Open the Start Menu and Type msconfig.exe in the search bar for windows 7 and hit Enter. ( For Windows XP, type in the ‘Run’ bar in Start Menu).

3. A list of Programs appear here. Uncheck the Programs you think are unwanted.

Note:
  • Don’t Disable all the programs in the startup. Some Programs are important for your Computer Like Antivirus Programs
  • msconfig.exe can be used to do several other things. Tweak with them only if you know what you are doing because it can cause system instability
