Using Msconfig To Speed Computer Startup

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.
