View Full Version : Stopping things starting up on boot

I know about msconfig but I want a more permanent solution to this problem as anything you take out of of msconfig shows a nag screen that your not starting everything up.

I want to stop certain processes from starting that I just don't need running.
How can I do this.

Use ccleaner.

Go to tools / startup. Highlight the entry / entries then click on delete entry.

It wont start on bootup then.

But if you're talking about services, you shouldnt be touching / disabling / unticking them under msconfig / services.

Disable whatever the proper way through Control panel / admin tools / services.

On the nag screen the other option is "Don't warn me again" :D

EDIT: 400 wahoo

Exactly. When you boot up the first time after disabling items in msconfig, just tick the box that says "Don't show the configuration windows after boot-up" or something like that. Easy as:thumbs:

Get Startup Inspector http://www.windowsstartup.com/ and get rid of things that are not needed

Services may be the alternative:

Start > Run > "services.msc" (without quotation marks)
