How to Clean your startup

IT'S TIME TO CLEAN UP THOSE EXECUTABLES THAT APPEAR AT BOOTUP/STARTUP.

EXPERIENCING SLOW STARTUP ? IT'S TRUE THAT YOUR PC SLOW DOWN FROM THE MOMENT WINDOWS STARTUP DUE TO PROGRAMS THAT GOT INSTALLED ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, DON'T BE SUPPRISED BY HOW MANY AUTOMATIC SERVICES ARE HIDDEN IN YOUR SYSTEM,TOOLBARS,STARTUP FOLDER, POPPING UP ONE AFTER ANOTHER TO SLOW DOWN YOUR PC STARTUP. FOR EXAMPLE SPYWARE SENDING REPORTS TO ITS MASTER NON STOP.

WHAT WE NEED HERE IS A TOOL TO HELP US LOCATE WHAT IS STARTING UP AND FROM WHERE. THE TOOL CALLED SYSINTERNALS AUTORUNS WILL ALLOW YOU TO DO JUST THAT, FOR EASY VIEWING THE UTILITY DEVIDES UP ALL THE AUTO-STARTING ITEM INTO TABS FOR PRINT MONITORS, WINLOGON,DRIVERS, BOOT EXECUTE, IMAGE HIJACKS, INTERNET EXPLORER AND SO FORTH, OR YOU CAN JUST CLICK ON " EVERYTHING" TO VIEW ALL ENTRIES GROUPED TOGETHER.

YOU CAN VIEW PROPERTIES OF EACH ENTRY, OR EVEN DO A GOOGLE SEARCH FROM THE AUTORUNS ENTRY MENU.YOU CAN DELETE THEM INDIVIDUALLY, VERIFY THEIR SIGNATURE OR EVEN JUMP TO THE ACTUAL ENTRY IN THR REGISTRY EDITOR ONCE YOU'VE FOUND OFFENDING ENTRIES.

NOW NOT ALL SPYWARE AND MALWARE WILL APPEAR IN AUTORUNS LIKEWISE NOT ALL EXECUTABLES ARE ACTUAL SPYWARE OT MALWARE. BUT THERE IS ALWAYS SOME UNWANTED PROGRAM THAT GOT INSTALLED THAT YOU CERTAINLY DON'T NEED TO RUN EVERYTIME YOU START WINDOWS, AND THAT'S WHAT AUTORUNS IS FOR, FINDING THE UNNECESSARY APPLICATIONS AND HELPING YOU GET RID OF THEM. IT'S A FREE TOOL AND ALSO EASY TO USE. DOWNLOAD IT FROM : WWW.SYSINTERNALS.COM/UTILITIES/AUTORUNS.HTML

You could use MSConfig for that. I mean, you want to get rid of the startup programs, then you manually look for them on MSConfig. Just press Start>Run>msconfig and you're there. You might as well keep away from those "you don't want to mess" type of selections. :D
