Windows has a common problem as we start using it and install more software, your PC starts up slowly. What should you do when your PC starts up slowly? The problem is common yet has several reasons behind it. Most of the times it’s related to your hardware configuration, yet it is annoying for many users.
You no more need to worry about it as we will help you speed up the Windows Startup again.
The system tends to start up slowly mainly due to the Windows autostart applications. This is a list of programs that starts automatically on startup. With this, the PC not only starts the operating system but also starts other background services which might be more or less important.
This uses computer resources, delays the Windows startup process and from getting fully operational.
To speed up the startup process you should check the autostart.
Autostart for Windows 10
- Windows 10 go to Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del).
- Select the Advanced Mode
- Click on Show More and then navigate to the Startup tab
Autostart for Windows 7
- Go to the command prompt in the start menu
- Type in “msconfig.exe” and press “Enter”
- System Configuration opens in which you can manage the boot process.
- Go to the Startup tab
In the Startup Tan search for all programs that you do not want to run while booting up. Drivers, virus protection and system programs no changes required. You can disable less important tools. Once the required tools are disabled you can click on the Apply and restart the system. This will accelerate the system to start.
Please Note: Slow system launch is not always a software issue, it may occur due to outdated hardware. For instance, if you install the latest version on Windows on old PC’s, it will tend to take a long time to load Windows. In such cases, the cleanup of a startup will not help you much. You can fix this to a certain extent by using an SSD or increasing the RAM.
