1) Removing unnecessary programs from startup
During the computer boot process, all installed programs that are in the startup section of the system are automatically downloaded and launched. They do not interfere with you to a greater extent, but they “devour” some of the resources of the PC’s RAM, which contributes to the slowdown of the system. To remove unnecessary programs from startup, you need to go to System Configuration (Msconfig):
Start – Control Panel – System and Security – Administrative Tools – System Configuration
Start – Run – type msconfig
keyboard shortcut Win + R – type msconfig
Next, go to the Startup tab.
