Prevent program to start when computer start


It a usual problem to all of us that sometimes makes our computer to hang.

But then there are options you can do to avoid programs from starting robotically by removing them from your system’s Startup List.

All we have to do is to configure your computer and edit your entire startup list program this is also called “System configuration utility” or “msconfig”. Follow the instructions below:

1. On your computer, click start < choose run < type msconfig and then click OK.

2. System Configuration Utility will appear. Move over to start up tab. You will now see all Startup List with all the items that start automatically when you start your computer.


On the checkbox, uncheck all unnecessary programs you don’t want to see when you start up your computer. When you are done, click Apply to save the changes you made.

Make sure to settle on which program you want to remove before doing this or else you may lose some system to function if you blindly remove other necessary programs in your computer
