Dell users, Please advise on what programs can be removed from Startup (msconfig) without removing the program. I have included the programs in ADD/REMOVE that were pre-installed with computer. Second, I have included a list of the icons showing on the taskbar. I will try to upload the prosseses running and the Startup Programs from Mike Lin's Startup Monitor HKLM. I can also show the hijackThis log if asked. My purpose is to remove un-needed quick launch programs that start automatically but are not needed until accessed. My additional intention is to provide a thread precedent for future searched topics in the database from Dell users that provides useful information in the Bits and Bytes Forum. Discussion is open from any or all sources concerning Dell products. Any help will be appreciated.
