  • have you ever run MSCONFIG ?

    it might be worth a try :)

    Click the Start Orb

    Navigate to Run (you can search or just follow through all programs, Accessories, Run )

    type in msconfig click continue

    navigate to the start-up tab


    this is a list of all the programs that Vista is loading as you get into windows.


    What i usually do is Disable all and then when Vista reboots (this is the clever part) Vista knows which Vital programs it should be running at start up :) so you have no worries about Windows Defender not starting or your AV :)
