Slow to boot?

Did you know: If your PC is taking too long to boot, it's probably because you have too many programs running at startup. Reducing this is easy. To change the items running at startup, go to Run using the hotkey Windows key + R, and type "msconfig" A small window will appear, select the Startup tab. From here you will be able to turn off many startup programs, which can shave several seconds (or minutes) off your boot time. (Note Windows 8 has moved this functionality to the Task Manager.) Make sure to only disable items you know for certain that you do not need in startup.
