    Few days back I was working with one of my client and realize her system is too slow to work. The reason being lots of process which are not even required are getting started with windows start-up. I told her about msconfig utility of windows system and I’m sure this will also help many windows users to speed your system to a great extent.

    You can access msconfig by typing msconfig without quotes in your windows run command.

    Once msconfig windows is up, look for startup tab at the top and check out programs which are starting with your system startup.   Elongate the command section and you will see a list of location from where the program is initiated. Any program which is checked it means it will start with windows and unchecked programs means it will not start with windows startup. Uncheck the program which make sense to you and doesn’t required at windows startup. You might be lucky enough to find any active viruses or Trojan horses which is getting started with your system. Here is a screenshot of my msconfig utility which will give you more idea of what you are trying to achieve.

You can ask here if you have query about any specific program which you see there and are not aware of. Also mention Startup item name and command.

    Few items which might not be removed by simply un-checking   are ctfmon.exe and Google update.exe. Do you use msconfig utility to speed up your system or share your tips and tricks on speeding up your computer?
