    How to change what programs start up with Windows

    Here's something that might help a lot of people, and how to prevent those pesky programs from starting up when you turn your computer on and taking up all your RAM.

    It's pretty simple:

    Click Start > type msconfig
    Click the startup tab
    Uncheck any program you do not NEED to start when windows starts (leave antivirus/spyware checked)
    Restart

    Hopefully this helps somebody out there, I am going to keep posting tips!

    I learned how to use MSconfig a long time ago, really helps with those programs that think they need to be loaded constantly. I'll load you when I need you, you little annoying program.
