If you don’t want to run unnecessary programs which you may not use frequently like Adobe Acrobat Reader or Yahoo messenger that startup with windows, you can remove them by unchecking the box next to program name.

  1. After unchecking all the required boxes click on OK button. It will prompt you to restart your computer. Click on Restart button. You may also exit without restart and continue doing your work. Later when you restart the system, changes will be applied and you should see a faster startup.
