Sysinternal Suite

It was suggested to me by a reader that I have a look at Sysinternal Suite from Microsoft. The reader said that this is better then using Run and typing "msconfig". What Sysinternal comes with is a bunch of executable, that is .exe, files. Each file does something different to help you troubleshoot different parts of your computer. The file which the reader said to use is called "AutoRuns.exe". Once open, this file shows you all the process your computer uses when it starts up. If you hover your mouse over each, it gives you a short description of what each item does. This is a little more advanced then msconfig, and takes some research before using if you are not sure what you are doing. When you decide you don't need something on start-up, simply uncheck the box next to it. When you are done you can close the program, restart, and allow your computer to put the changes into effect. This shows a lot more then msconfig, so please do your research before using it. You could mess up your computer if you don't know what you are doing.
