You’re in a hurry and trying to boot your computer up but it takes like five minutes or more before the system becomes useable. Countless startup programs seem to be choking your computer and hang it somehow. With so many programs starting up with your computer, it takes quite a while before you can use the OS and full boot might be slow but there’s a fix for it.
This isn’t a new tweak, as a matter of fact, it’s very old but you probably won’t know about it if you’re not a computer savvy person. You don’t need any other software to kill these startup programs preventing Windows from booting quick, there’s a default in-built feature where you can turn off those autostart programs.
