Improve Your PC Performance – Limit How Many Programs Run at Startup
Most utilities are designed to automatically start when Windows loads. Publishers always set their products to run in the background, where you may not see them running, so that they can open right away when you click the icons. That’s truly user-friendly for programs you use very often.
For those you seldom use or never plan to use, however, this wastes precious system resources and slows down your PC performance, for example, it takes long to finish starting up. You shall decide for yourself whether you want the program to run at startup.
But how can you possibly know what programs will automatically open at startup? Sometimes this could be obvious, because the program adss an icon to the notification area on the taskbar (system tray), where you can see it running. Check there to know whether there is any programs running that you didn’t play to run it. Point to each icon to get the program name, and be sure to click the Show hidden icons button so you won’t miss any of them.
