When you install a program, often it will set itself up so that it starts every time you start Windows.
This can be a real pain, because having a lot of programs start that way means it takes longer for Windows to start and the memory used can slow your PC to a drag.
Not every program has to start automatically. You may decide to let some do so - like messenger programs. For the others, CCleaner Cloud gives you a way to stop them in their tracks.
To control which programs start with Windows:
- In Software, click the Startup section on the left.
- In the Startup screen, you'll see a list of all items that have been set to start automatically with Windows. Those that have been disabled will be grayed out and will state "No" in the Enabled column.
- Here you can do one of the following actions:
- To prevent a program from starting with Windows, select the program entry and click Disable.
- To prevent a program from starting with Windows and to remove it from the auto-start list, select the program entry and click Delete.
- To allow a program to start with Windows, select the program entry and click Enable.
