What is a Windows startup program?
A Startup program is a installed application/protocol that automatically starts when the computer is booted on. These often seem harmless, but they can play havoc with system resources. Some you might find necessary such as antiviral software, spyware, printer tools... but there are some that are just unnecessary.
Unless you use the program in the startup tray daily, I recommend removing them from the system...
This little work show is going to explain just how to do this.
