You've noticed that your Windows 10 system is taking longer and longer to boot than it used to. A few late ones may be to blame programs which start at boot. Below we will see how you can control which programs start automatically and how to disable them.
Some apps do not ask for permission to be added to the startup list, others may be present on your computer as bloatware. Well, it's time to take control in your hands, or rather control your boot.
Locate and disable startup programs
Open the Windows Task Manager by pressing the three keys together: Ctrl+Shift+Esc. If you see the Expand details option at the bottom of it 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 to view boot programs, it may not display them all. The best way to make sure that you see all the programs is a Microsoft utility called Autoruns for Windows.
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 boot, simply untick the box. You may need to confirm the action by clicking Run As Admin.
Let's see which programs you can disable:
If you are using a game client such as Steam, Origin or the Galaxy GOG, ίσως να δείτε στη λίστα των εφαρμογών που ξεκινούν με το σύστημά σας. Αν παίζετε συνεχώς, μπορείτε να τα αφήσετε, αλλά αν τα χρησιμοποιείτε περιστασιακά είναι ασφαλές να τα απενεργοποιήσετε.
Chat apps like Skype and others show your friends when you're online and availablei for chat. The problem is, however, that they have a very heavy footprint on your computer's boot. You can disable them.
Adobe Reader is fuzzy and superfluous, but it is included in the list of applications that start at boot time.
If you want to keep it, despite better alternatives, at least you can turn it off.
You can also find Adobe ARM, which is used for automatic update Adobe software. It may be a little more useful, but it is still an unnecessary feature.
You use the OneDrive, Dropbox or Google Drive apps. All these apps start at startup so they can sync automatically archives your. 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 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.
Το iTunes Helper και το Apple Push μπορεί να βρίσκονται στη λίστα, ειδικά εάν έχετε συνδέσει ποτέ κάποια συσκευή ios στον υπολογιστή σας. Το πρώτο εξασφαλίζει ότι το iTunes εκκινείται αυτόματα όταν συνδέετε μια συσκευή iOS και το δεύτερο έχει σκοπό να βοηθήσει το σύστημά σας να επικοινωνήσει με το iCloud. Και τα δύο μπορούν να απενεργοποιηθούν.
What you have to keep
Of course the antivirus software and usually anything that supports hardware or peripherals such as card graphics or your mouse.
For help on what you should not disable, check the Startup Database that has published the bleepingcomputer.
