Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Does anyone know what programs I should turn on for start up on msconfig? I disabled

them all and then I couldn't get on the internet so I enabled them all and now everything is loading so slow and when I start to type it takes so long for the first letter to come out, if you know what that means.

I want to disable things but I don't know which ones. Or is there a good site with this kind of information?

Thanks. You guys always are so helpful. (and guys is generic for people for us raised in the northeast)

2. You can look up specific programs here; bleepingcomputer.com is reputable:

Note the link on the right-hand side of the page to a forum on the subject if you have any questions about the recommendations for a particular program. Often someone will have asked about a program already, and you just need to do a search.

I let Windows handle my wireless configuration (rather than the program that came with my USB adapter) and I like my system pretty bare-bones, so the only programs I have checked at startup are my antivirus and my firewall.

3. Your anti-virus

That is all I turn on.
