How To : stop unnecessary services from running everytime you boot up.

Have you ever installed something on your computer, yet you don’t need it every time windows starts up?

You can choose what services start up with Windows every time you boot up the computer.

You can do it through System Configuration, which is a utility that comes with Windows. It’s for configuring the start up process, boot configurations, etc. However you must be an administrator with full rights to your computer in order to edit these settings.

Simply open up Control Panel and go to Administrative Tools. It will be listed as System Configuration.

In here, you can stop services running during boot up, if they are not necessary to the boot up process. A lot of the stuff in here is a lot like Safe Mode (F8) except that you can choose it while inside Windows GUI.

If you can’t get into your GUI and need those options, you need to log into Safe Mode (with it’s varying options). When the computer restarts continually press F8. You’ll probably hear a few beeps if you do it too much, but it won’t hurt the computer.
