What are Startup Applications?
Startup applications are applications which start automatically with each boot. They are set to run in the background and use up precious system memory. Some programs that run automatically may be visible in the notification area on the taskbar and you might miss others, particularly malicious software will not be visible.
Too many auto-run applications make your PC startup slow and frustrating. It is essential to manage and take control of your login items for a faster boot up. Make sure to strip down unnecessary login items and keep running the only ones you really need, making boot times significantly faster.
