Hi All,

I have a bunch of applications that start at bootup. I really want to clean this out so that the seldom used and unneeded programs do not automatically start when I boot my computer. I don't want to delete or remove the programs, I just don't want them starting at boot.

Can someone teach me how to do this please?

You can easily remove those start-up applications in your system configuration settings. Some other alternatives are removing all shortcuts in Startup group under your start menu/all programs. If you know how to use the registry editor, you can remove all your startup applications from there.

Just navigate the keys HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun as well as in the HKEY_CURRENT_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrent VersionRun. Remove all applications you will see on the right pane of the registry editor.

To remove from the System Configuration, press Window + R then type MSCONFIG on the run dialog box, click the Startup tab and uncheck all the applications on the list then click Ok or Apply.
