automatically started programs in Vista Home Premium RRS feed

  • Question

  • Could I be advised how to obtain from my OS a list of those programs that are automatically started and run in the background and how to turn off those that I do not need.  Also can I turn off temporarily the autostart utility that polls drives to see if a disk is waiting to commence.  I am trying to get rid of as much background activity that steals fps from gaming applications.

  • Click start->Type 'msconfig'->Choose 'Startup' tab. In there would be the list of all of the programs loading during startup
