How To Make Programs Running at System Startup

Share on :

When people write programs, most of them design their product to automatically launch at the systems startup. Is it really necessary for these programs to be running? Only key programs such as anti-virus and firewall programs need to be running at system startup. The other programs should be re-configured to start only when needed. 

Having a lot of programs running at once is very taxing to your system resources and if enough of them are running can cause errors in your operating system, usually memory type errors. Another noticeable problem is a slowing in your boot process. Do you have a computer that is taking a couple of minutes to boot up?

To stop these programs from running at startup, locate the program and re-configure it to NOT run at startup. This is usually found in the programs Properties. Or alternately, you can use Microsoft's System Configuration Utility to accomplish this. Here's how:

  • Go to Start>> Run. Type in: msconfig [Enter] or Click OK.
  • Click the Startup tab.
  • Uncheck any program listed here to stop it from running.
  • Exit the Configuration Utility and reboot your system.
