How can I disable unnecessary programs from automatically running?

1. Use the System Configuration Utility (msconfig.exe) to modify startup settings:

– Open the Run window from the Start menu (or hold down the Windows key and press R).
-Type msconfig.exe in the text box, and click OK.
– In the System Configuration window, select the Startup tab.
– Go through each item on the list and make sure it’s necessary for your computer’s performance. If not, uncheck it.

2. Use Windows Task Manager to disable programs from starting up:
– Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up the Windows Task Manager.
– Go to the Startup tab and select any program you don’t need and click “Disable.”

3. Use third-party software to manage startup programs:
– Download and install a program like CCleaner or Autoruns.
– With these programs, you can easily manage which programs are running at startup.
