Hi

How about you do a few of the Tweaks in Easy XP Tweaks Second Edition that should make you computer faster. You don't have to do all of the just the once aimed as system performance.

Good Morning kalinbridg...

Good job! I got 6 apps already that we'll stop. Now scroll the list down until "attune ce" is at the top and shoot me another screenshhot.

Note: I'm going to be in and out for a few hours this morning, but will be checking in when I'm here. When the list is complete, we'll get to work stopping the unnecessary applications so that we only have to do it once. I'll be watching for the next screenshot. (FYI...the startup programs in MY startup list don't even fill the first window... :tazz: )

Ok kalinbridg...

Sorry it took so long...I always look these up to make sure you don't need them at startup. :tazz:
Let's start with these...uncheck the box next to each entry.

logitray
camtray
conmgr
qttask
BackWeb
ypager
mmtray
microsoft office
msmsgs
adobe reader
googletalk
ISStart

You have two blank entries...would you post the file names that appear just off the images you posted?

Restart you machine. Upon restart, you will see a Selective Startup dialog box...check the box in the lower left corner and click "Ok".

Is your machine running a little faster?

Thanks wannabe, i just unchecked the boxes as u instructed. regarding the blank spaces on the screenbox, it's only one blank space...it looked like two cos of the way i posted it. but the one blank space does not give the name of the command...just the location.
i am about to restart my computer. i'l hit you up to let you know how it went.

Wannabe1,

Yea, i did restart and checked the box on the selective startup dialogue box. i think it did boot a little quicker this time. i think it could still boot much faster. u reckon?

Have you timed it? I just booted a brand new build...48 seconds from power on to desktop (with Norton IS 2005 on startup).
