What starts with your PC?

Recommended Posts

Only really bothered with disabling what small amount of startup items I had when I got my SSD and realised how much quicker my OS loaded. From that point on I was determined to make it even quicker :)

Avira Anti Vir

PeerBlock

Comodo Firewall\Defence+

Steam

Skype

MSN

 

 

Thats it. I always chat online, so they start up happily and quickly every time.

 

Steam opens purely so it can always autoupdate.

 

and the rest are just antivirus etc.

I run my antivirus and zune so ican sync whenever i plug my phone in without having to turn the monitor on.

 

I didn't know so many people still use msconfig. I like sysinternals autoruns much more.

I checked my startup via msconfig . Whoa i found a game that was slowing down my bootup process . So i deleted it.

 

For those who are interested in what program caused the slowsown it was Locomotion. It was hanging for 10secs waiting for update to the game.

I use that as well, but msconfig makes a nice to read window.

LOL As if you would waste time to download bloatware (AVG 7), or spend money on anti-virus (Norton, NOD)

Ok, what do you use?

Why do you use it?

And what has it found on its watch dog status?

 

These answers will help me make the switch.

Some random drive-by thing that tried to load up while surfing once. It killed it.

Yes, it works fine. Not that it matters, I only ever boot into Ubuntu. It's a much much better OS for netbook use.

 

Wow.

Yes, WoW works on Ubuntu.

 

:P

Why don't you just run ubuntu?

 

Because the IDE/assembler I use is Windows only. That being said, I've almost got it working under Wine.
