A slow startup speed is very frustrating and to wait forever before you can use your computer is not very funny that either. But to clean a computer is not very complicated and you don’t need to be a computer technician to fix common computer problems. A computer with a slow startup speed is not an uncommon problem and usually it can be fixed without any difficulties or any third party software involvements. Windows got its own built-in tools and you can also do a lot of things manually without having to pay for a computer service or a software.
How To Fix Startup Speed In Windows 7!
The most common problem that occurs when you start Windows is that too many other processes starts at the same time. So if you have many programs that loads when Window starts, it will take a longer time to start, unless you have a very powerful CPU and memory. The fastest way to manually fix the startup problems is to go to msconfig. Go to Start and typing in “msconfig” in the search box. The System Configuration window will appear, click on the Startup tab and then uncheck all the programs you want to stop from starting. Click on the apply button and close the window. Restart Windows to see if the changes have been effective.
Another good idea is to only use a standard Windows 7 theme, if you use the Aero theme, disable it. Right click on the desktop and click on the “Personalize” tab. Choose a theme in the Basic and High Contrast Themes menu. To speed up things even more, open the Control Panel and click on “Programs” and then on “Turn Windows features on or off” link. Uncheck all features you don’t want to use and press the Ok button, you must restart Windows so the changes can take effect.

But doing it manually can cause even more problems if you’re not experienced, so to use a tool is not a bad idea.
