Does your Windows PC takes several minutes to startup?
Often, the reason for this is too many startup programs. Startup programs are those which are automatically launched every time you power up Windows. Many startup programs, such as the antivirus program, should be launched when Windows boots, but some programs do not need to be in the startup list and can be removed safely.
You can use the built-in System Configuration utility to manage your startup programs. Here is what you need to do.
- Click the Windows icon in the taskbar
- Type msconfig in the Start Search box
- Click the Startup tab in the System Configuration dialog box
- Uncheck the programs you don’t want to be launched automatically
- Click Apply, and then OK
- Restart Windows
Other reasons may also cause delay during the startup process. If the above steps do not fix the issue, we recommend you download and use advanced PC Optimisation software. Such software can troubleshooting all types of slow PC performance issues, including slow Windows startup.
