    How to you edit which programs you want to start, when starting up your PC?

    My 7 yr old has a PC that is running slow is he**. I did the ol, "CTRL/ALT/Delete" thingy, and saw TONS of programs, which I'm sure were installed while downloading online games.

    Anyway, I deleted the unnecessary programs, and then the PC sped way up. The problem is, when I reboot, those programs start again.

    I used to know how to do this.

    Can someone help me? My brain is not working lol.

    Thanks

    Paul

    Paul,
    I think you really want to uninstall the undesirable programs from your computer rather than remove it from you start up tool, to remove the programs go to, control panel, add/remove . Select the dodgy looking programs and uninstall then.

    You did not indicate which operating systems you have on your PC but I am assuming you have Windows, what version of windows do you run, XP?

    Temi,

    I've uninstalled the, "undesirable" programs, but I'm dying to know how to stop other, "desirable" programs from loading when I boot up the PC.

    Geezz...She had so much crapola on that PC. Almost every spyware/adware program I've heard of, was on that PC. Gone now :D

    Paul,
    You still did not say the version of Windows you are running ....... anyway try this:
    Righ click on your start button
    Click open
    Double click programs

    You will see a folder called start up, what is where all the prograns that starts when you first launch you computer are stored

    Yes,
    I guessed right, that my suggestions, hopefully it will work, if it does not I will look into it for you tomorrow. I can hear my bed calling, I need to go and stretch before I become the hunchback of Worc.
