Today when I looked up some information on the web at work, I came across a little Windows magic command that will save a lot of my time. My PC is four years old, and although I tried to install as few programs as possible, they piled up over time. One problem is that some of them try to do something at startup but they are not even used at the end of the day. If your computer takes a long time to start, you are having the same problem as I did. The Windows' "Startup" menu in "All Programs" only lists some of these programs, removing the listed programs simply doesn't cut at all. The magic command is "msconfig" executed at "Run" in "Start". This will lead to a complete list of those self-started programs. Yes, some of you knew this trick but I did not! Once I put it in my blog, I'll know where to go when I need to turn off some programs. Oh, before I go, bye-bye MSN Messager you fxxker!
