XP Users:

  • Open Start Menu and select "Run..."
  • In the run box type: msconfig and press enter.
  • A window will appear, go to the Startup tab.
  • In the startup tab, disable tick boxes on all the programs that don't necessarily need to be started at boot.

Vista Users:

  • Open Start Menu and in the white box type: msconfig
  • Click msconfig.exe that appeared in the list and confirm the UAC.
  • A window will appear, go to the Startup tab.
