Windows 10 disable applications that delay Boot

You've noticed that your Windows 10 system is taking longer and longer to boot than it used to. Culprits may be some slow prethe ones that start at boot. Below we will see how you can control which programs start automatically and how to disable them.

Some apps don't ask for it to be added to the startup list, while others may exist on your computer as bloatware. Well, it's time to take control, or rather control of your boot.boat

Locate and disable startup programs

Open the Windows Task Manager by pressing the three keys together: Ctrl + Shift + Esc. If you see Expand details at the bottom of the window. Click on it.

On the Startup tab, sort the programs from High to Low. You'll see programs that put more strain on the disk and the CPU, which can cause more time for your computer to load. Let's see how you can find the programs you want to disable from the boot loader of your system.

(Hopefully you know what all the programs are. If not, right-click and click Search online to learn more.)

To disable a program from booting at startup, right-click the list and click Disable. You can reverse this at any other time with another right-click and clicking Enable.

Hidden boot programs

While Task Manager is the simplest way of launchers, it may not show all of them. The best way to ensure that you see all programs is a Microsoft utility called Autoruns for Windows.boot, iguru, remove applications

Download it from the link below, start the application and look at the Logon tab.

You can click on any program you see in the list to see more details at the bottom of the window. The information has the name and file size.

To remove it from the boot, simply untick it in the box. You may need to confirm the action by clicking Run as Administrator.

Let's see which programs you can disable:


If you're using a game client like Steam, Origin or Galaxy GOG, you might see in the list of apps that start with your system. If you play continuously, you can leave them, but if you use them occasionally it is safe to turn them off.

Chat Apps

Chat applications, like Skype and others, show your friends when you are logged in and available for chat. The problem is, however, that they have a very heavy footprint on your computer's boot. You can turn them off.

Adobe programs

The it's bloated and unnecessary, but it's included in the list of apps that start at startup.

If you want to keep it, despite better alternatives, at least you can turn it off.

You may also find Adobe ARM, which is used to automatically update Adobe programs. It is perhaps a bit more useful, but it is still an unnecessary function.


You use OneDrive, Dropbox or Drive. All of these apps start at startup so they can sync your files automatically. There is no doubt that this behavior is a very big advantage if you use the cloud all the time.

But if you do not use it often, you do not even need immediate synchronization.

Apple Applications

Apple loads too many applications in auto-boot. If QuickTime is available, uninstall it completely. Apple does not support it and your browser does a much better job.

iTunes Helper and Apple Push might be on the list, especially if you've ever connected a device on your computer. The former ensures that iTunes launches automatically when you connect an iOS device, and the latter is intended to help your system communicate with iCloud. Both can be disabled.

What you have to keep

Of course the anti-virus software and usually anything that supports it or peripherals such as your graphics card or mouse.
For help on what you should not disable, check the Startup Database that has published the bleepingcomputer.
