can i untick any of these in start up? WkuFind etc thanks
Expand it and show the command line
ok how do i do that
Place your mouse pointer on the line between Command and Location.
When the crosshairs come up left click to lock and slide to the right.
You can check the items on this website if you see an N or X you may uncheck them. Here is the website: http://castlecops.com/StartupList.html
Take also a look at these locations:
start,all programs,start up
start,run,type regedit press enter expand hkey_local_machine and the following folders and subfolders: software,microsoft,windows,currentversion,run at you right side you will find also start up items. You have to delete them if you don't want that they start together with windows. Enter them also on the website.
There may be a driver or service that needs to load on ones particular box.
You can un-check boxes in groups of two, re-start and see if all is well. Use the list as a "guide only".
you can disable nwiz.exe- heres the description:
nwiz.exe is a part of NVidia's Nview features installable alongside it's graphics hardware products. This application will give the user access to additional features which allow the configuration of up to 32 monitors on a host, or to expand the desktop across many monitors. This is a non-essential process. Disabling or enabling it is down to user preference
you might want to try a program called ace utilities, it has a great startup manager, and a right click on any service gives the option to search google for it and find out what it does and if its needed or not
here's a screenshot:
In addition to nwiz, I usually disable nvcpl and nvmctray too.
You can disable msnmsgr depending on how much you use it. I would just disable it and manually start Messenger when I plan on IMing.
Another helpful program is "The Ultimate Troubleshooter" (TUT) http://www.answersthatwork.com/. It gives advice on Startups, Services, and running Tasks, as well as other information. Evaluation download is available.
