How can I clean up startup programs?

1. Use the System Configuration Tool (Mscongif.exe): You can use this tool to view and modify which programs or services launch when your computer starts. To open this tool, type “msconfig” into the Windows search bar and press enter.

2. Use the Autoruns tool: This is a more advanced tool that allows you to view and disable startup programs, scheduled tasks, browser helper objects, and many other system components. Download it from Microsoft’s official website.

3. Uninstall unnecessary programs: Sometimes programs remain on your PC even after you uninstall them. Check your list of installed programs and remove the ones that you don’t need.

4. Disable startup programs: You can prevent programs from launching automatically when your PC boots up. Head over to Task Manager, select the Start-up tab, and disable programs that you don’t need.
