Sluggish startup getting you down? In all Windows based systems, there is a startup folder that tells your computer what to initiate when you power the computer on. Sometimes, new programs add themselves and your startup process gets bogged down. Here’s how to fix it.

Find your startup utility. 
Remember, you do have to be logged in as an Administrator to make changes in your startup utility.

Windows 7 users—Press Win-r. In the “Open:” field, type “msconfig” and press “Enter”. Then click the “Startup” tab to view and uncheck items that you do not wan to launch when you start your computer.

Windows 10 users—simply open the task manager by clicking on the “Windows” icon in the lower left of your screen and type “task manager”, then click on the “Startup” tab.
