Problem

By daves ·
Hi,
I have a question for you. My computer is slowing down
a little. I think I have too many things running in the background.
Below is what is running in the background. Could you tell me
what they are and which ones I can get rid of? Pleseread the whole question.
Thanks,
DAve

If you find a program is not working properly, add the line that references the program in question.

Remove the following:

Reminder Startup Group "C:\Program Files\Dont4Get\Reminder3_2.exe"
Microsoft Office Startup Group "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE" -b -l
Microsoft Works Calendar Reminders Startup Group "C:\Program Files\MSWorks\Calendar\WKCALREM.EXE"
run Win.ini hpfsched
Taskbar Display Controls Registry (Per-User Run) RunDLL deskcp16.dll,QUICKRES_RUNDLLENTRY
Reminder Registry (Per-User Run) C:\Program Files\Microsoft Money\System\reminder.

If you're not sure what they are, you didn't put them there yourself so you can get rid of most of them.

You didn't mention your OS. If you have Win98 or later, go to START/RUN and type MSCONFIG, this will bring up the configuration utility where you can disconnect each program from starting up. If you find you have disconnected one that you need, just run MSCONFIG again and reconnect it under the STARTUP tab.

There are a number of programs in your list that you can access through programs from the atart menu,uncheck the applications that you donot need at start up Greetings,Workshop,Scanner,this can be done by going to Start>Run>type in MISCONFIG,AND uncheck the appplications,reboot the system and see if there is improvement.
