Disable startup programs Windows 7


Disable startup programs Windows 7

Some applications and services cause system errors and freezes when running simultaneously from Adobe applications. Services are custom programs that implement functionality to support other programs. Before you start your Adobe application, disable other applications, including startup items (things that start automatically with Windows), and services using selective startup.

Important : When you deselect Mount System Services in Selective or Diagnostic Startup, you are permanently deleting all System Restore Utility restore points. If you are concerned about deleting your restore points, keep this option selected and then test for the problem. Sometimes you have to turn off system services at the end to fully test the problem.

Note : The commands in these steps may differ slightly depending on your system configuration.
