The following is a partial list of startup program that came with a new
Dell Inspiron B130 laptop computer. As you can see Dell has packed this machine
with a number of programs which start automatically.
While many of these programs may useful, many of them are not required to run at all time.
Some are loaded "just in case" you want to run their main program quicker.
Some constantly go out on to the internet checking to see if you have the most current version of their software. Some run at all times on the task bar just in case you want to change or reconfigure some settings.
If you purchase a new computer, we recommend using WinPatrol PLUS to learn more about what program are necessary. By preventing the unneeded programs from running you could increase the speed of some applications up to 40%.
