Clean Boot: Which Application Causes Windows Problems?

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 errors though, there are various options that you can use to solve it . In most cases, there is some third-party software on the system that doesn't work with everything else. When we mention 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  W8K + R και πληκτρολογήστε msconfig στο παράθυρο του Run που θα ανοίξει.  Κάντε κλικ στο OKAY.

2. Στο παράθυρο διαμόρφωσης συστήματος, επισκεφτείτε την καρτέλα Υπηρεσίες και επιλέξτε Απόκρυψη όλων των υπηρεσιών της Microsoft και στη συνέχεια, κάντε κλικ στην Απενεργοποίηση όλων.

In the image above the options are listed in English "Hide All Microsoft Services" and "Disable All."

3. Τώρα επισκεφτείτε την καρτέλα και κάντε κλικ στην επιλογή Άνοιγμα Διαχείρισης (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 the problem persists, you have identified the root cause of the problem (the software you disabled in step 4. You can proceed with the application that is causing 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.

That's it…
