Below we will see how to find your application that has problems with your operation clean startup (or Clean Boot) on Windows 10, 8 and 7.
Clean Boot or Clean Boot is a Windows boot process with the minimum resources it needs.
In Windows, we often encounter problems from software and / or hardware. For the latter, we can not say much, as they need knowledge that does not have a novice user, and require inspection of computer components.
For software bugs though, there are several options you can use to fix the problem. In most cases, there is some third-party software in the system that does not work with everything else. When we refer to third-party software we mean applications that are not developed by Microsoft.
For example, you may run some antivirus software from another known manufacturer, but it does not work well with your system, causing BSOD, blocking settings, etc.
If you suspect that your system issues are from third-party software, but you do not know what the application is, you should try the "clean boot" method. Clean Boot is a Windows startup process with minimal applications and services. If you choose to start Windows with minimal resources, you can restart the applications one by one to find the program that has the problem and remove it.
Below we will see how you can find the application that is causing your problems using Clear Boot, but without a clean boot of Windows:
1. Press the two keys together + R and type msconfig in the Run window that will open. Click the OK button.
2. In the System Configuration window, visit the Services tab, and then click Hide All Microsoft Services, and then click Disable All.
In the image above the options are listed in English "Hide All Microsoft Services" and "Disable All."
3. Now visit the Startup tab and click Open Task Manager.
4. In the Task Manager window, on the Startup tab, right-click an app that you suspect and click Disable.
5. Close Task Manager and restart your system.
6. If after restarting you do not encounter the problem, you identified the root cause of the problem (the software you disconnected in step 4.) You can proceed by uninstalling the application that causes the problems on your system.
7. If the problem persists, you can continue with step 4. Select another service, disable it and restart. See if the problem has been resolved or continues to exist. Continue with step 4 until you find the application that is causing problems on your system.
