La Windows(incepand cu XP) se pot observa programele care pleaca cu sistemul, cu comanda msconfig, in Startup; de exemplu daca ati instalat Nero Burning Rom, in startup veti observa ca acesta la initializarea SO-ului a pus un program numit NeroCheck, se poate dezactiva fara nici o grija, veti putea parli cd-uri in continuare.Si QuickTime pune un programel in startup(care se poate dezactiva fara nici o problema), si Adobe Photoshop pune in startup Adobe Gamma Loader care e bun daca se calibreaza monitorul, dar asta ar insemna sa aveti o imprimanta profesionala ca sa va foloseasca, se poate dezactiva, Photoshopul va functiona in continuare, Adobe Reader 7 vine si el cu Adobe Reader Speed Launch, care poate fi dezactivat fara nici o problema.  Dar nu la toate programele se poate, de exemplu 3DStudio Max instaleaza un spyware/adware numit C-Dilla License Management care are ca fisier executabil cdantsrv.exe, partea proasta e ca se instaleaza ca serviciu, si daca este sters sau dezactivat, atunci nu se mai poate rula 3DStudio Max.
Un program mai bun pt vazut ce porneste cu calculatorul (care iti arata pe categorii) este utilitarul Autoruns(de la Microsoft) sua pentru xp,StartUp CPL 2.x (StartUp Control Panel), acestea sunt gratuite.
            Odata cu Windows 2k s-a maturizat si notiunea de servicii, le voi trata din punctul de vedere al Windows XP (SP3) si Windows 7. Serviciul(service) este prin definitie un program care ruleaza in background(adica invizibil), nimica nou s-ar putea spune, dar un serviciu v-a rula odata cu SO indiferent daca cineva se va loga sau nu se va loga nimeni, sau indiferent de cel care se va loga la SO(indiferent de contul utilizat), fata de un program care pleaca din Strat Up din Program Files, si depinde de contul cu care s-a logat pentru a porni sau nu. Din pacate sunt multe servicii care pornesc cu SO si mananca resurse, fara a fi folositoare; din fericire se pot dezactiva. Fiecare serviciu are 3 stari de startup al lui : Automatic= porneste automat de fiecare data, Manual= porneste doar cand exista un program care il solicita(de retinut ca desi unele sunt pe manual(gen print spooler) trebuie dat manual start pt ca adesea apar erori(nu porneste la cererea programului)) si Disabled=nu porneste deloc.Buuuun si acuma sa vedem care servicii nu ne sunt de folos , si de ce(deci la urmatoarele le-am dat disable la PC-ul meu,; Mare atentie sa va salvati datele pt ca in caz de merge ceva rau nu va mai putea porni SO-ul):
