How To Disable Startup Programs In Windows 7 and VistaOver time as you install more and more software you may start to notice that it takes longer and longer for your computer to startup.  More likely than not, this is probably because many applications these days hook into your Windows Startup process and automatically load up each time you start your computer.   For some applications, that’s a good thing (Anti-Virus, Firewall, etc…) and I’m OK with it, however for the majority of apps out there it’s just a resource  which are doing nothing more than taking up memory, cpu and extending my startup times.So it needed to be be remove.
