While freshly installed computers are generally free from bloatware and
boot-clogging software, pre-installed notebooks are notoriously clogged with all
manner of junk that loads at startup. To find out what's in your PC, go Start
> type "msconfig" in the search box by the Start button and hit enter >
under the 'Startup' tab you'll find a complete list of the 'Startup Items', who
'Manufactured' the program and what the 'Command' instruction is.
It takes a little bit of investigative work to determine what's what, I find
expanding the Command line gives the best insight into what programs are
launching. For example, you may see several entries for Adobe PDF, PowerDVD or
even web cameras which really don't need to be loaed unless you open these
applications. Uncheck what you don't need to load at start up and reboot the PC.
To clean out the MSCONFIG list you need to use Msconfig Cleaner which can
permenantly remove any unchecked item.
Depending on how much is cleaned out, you could see a healthy improvement to
start up times!
