Running in Background

By daves ·
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.

Running in Background

by spiceman In reply to Running in Background

The programs are mostly utilities to save you time when running them by already being in memory. You can get rid of these from 3 places - last not recommended.
1. startup menu
start - settings - taskbar
select start menu programs - advance
double click programs, startup and delete the startup programs. Close window.

2. control panel - services.
find services running and click startup. Select manual or disabled for the service.

3. You can always edit registry (don't try though)

Best to eliminate 1 program at a time, reboot and if no problems eliminate the next background program.

Good luck,

eliminate only 1 program at a time so if you have problems you can get back to the previous step - many reboots needed.
