Re: Too many programs on my computer
OK First off having a large number of programs installed on your computer technically won't slow it down.
The only thing that may cause a problem is if the programs and their files are fragmented and all over the place so you may want to run a defrag.
The other thing you may want to do is stop any programs you don't use running anything upon startup.
Hit start, Then go to Run, The type "msconfig" and hit enter.
Go to the startup tab and uncheck anything you do not need, NOTE this will not stop your programs from working as the services required will startup when you launch the programs.
Please only change items in the startup as the other areas can cause tricky system issues if you don't know what you are doing.
Try and Google nay processes / programs you don't know and that should give you an idea as to if you need it on the startup or not.
He who has never failed has never attempted anything worth succeeding at.
