Thread: This Used To Be So Simple....

  1. #1
    There is the way to close running programs by using CTRL+ALT+DEL, this I know. But there is a better way to do this than CTRL+ALT+DEL, I just cant remember how to do it. Closing programs using CTRL+ALT+DEL is something you will have to do everytime you turn your computer on in order to not have those programs running. But I remember there is a way to turn these programs off by opening up a window somewhere that lists all the programs that are currently running(the same ones as in the CTRL+ALT+DEL screen). Each of these programs have a box to the left of them that you may check or uncheck. If checked, than the program with run upon starting the computer, and if unchecked, than it will not run unless you manually open it.

    Does anyone remember how to do this??

    edit: Yes I know this is posted elsewhere already but it's been hours and still no replies. I've become frustrated and figured I'd post it here as well. Sorry, but it shouldn't inconvinience anyone. B)

    star > run > services.msc is also pretty useful for killing off a few processes you may not need to start up every time.

    Go HERE and click on A for all your background programs that start with A, then click on B etc............some of the items on your list aren't covered but for those you can type in the actual file name in a google search and bring up some pages that outline their function.
