Enhance Startup Speed in Windows 8 by Disabling Resource Hog Apps From Startup

The startup and shutdown process of Windows 8 is faster than the earlier versions of Windows. However, the startup performance is directly depend on applications, especially resource hog applications that are automatically start when your Windows 8 boots up.

 As you all know, Windows 8 has a whole new look and features. The task manager has new features and provides a lot of useful performance information about your PC. One among them is “Startup” tab that displays all applications that are automatically start when your pc boots.

As I told above, each application that starts automatically at startup has its own impact on startup performance. The task manager’s Startup tab lists all apps that start automatically when your PC boots up along with its rating - none, low, medium, high, and not measured.


You can disable all high and medium rating apps by right clicking on the entry and then selecting Disable.
