Default Crl, Alt, Delete....procces!

Whenever i start up my computer i have to do crl alt delete then go into process and turn them all off becuase there are programs running in the background that are slowing my computer. Is there a program that will do this for me?

start|run|command|msconfig

Select the startup tab and uncheck whatever you don't want to run at startup.

Not to my knowledge.

Look there for what services youve got running and what they do, how to disable them, and IF you should disable them or not.

That is- if you have XP.

I wouldnt recommend using msconfig. Instead, type "services.msc" (no quotes) to avoid disabling required services.

I agree that services is easier to use, I just have lots of practice with msconfig due to many problems on last computer and think its faster.

Personally, I would recommend using both as some applications, when installed, start up as an application and not a service. But with both of these tools you'll be able to hack it out.
