Months or even years after you bought your last computer, it seems there are some programs that make your computer boot slower than before.
A simple and free tool to use is Microsoft Windows Msconfig. This command allows you to control which programs and services run at computer startup.
How to use Msconfig
I am using a French keyboard by the way.
- Go to Start then type this command: msconfig
- A System configuration window opens.
- In the fourth tab, uncheck all the programs you don’t want to load at startup. For example, I have Winamp that starts with Windows. I simply uncheck it and click on Apply.
- Windows asks you to either restart your computer or close the window without restarting. I prefer the second option.
