Through our IT Consultancy, Support and HelpDesk Services we often come across PC problems caused primarily by programs running in the background, programs which in most cases are started automatically when Windows boots up. 65% of computer problems we solve are caused by such programs. Sometimes these programs are useful and need to be there; quite often, however, they are not needed, and in too many cases they cause severe problems, and this includes some Microsoft "Services" !
The pages included in this website provide guidance on the usefulness or not of some of these background tasks, Windows services, Windows Startups, and removal procedures when recommended.These pages are small extracts from the massive database of our product The Ultimate Troubleshooter.
Without question, The Ultimate Troubleshooter is the most complete and most effective PC Tuning and PC Troubleshooting program ever written.
If you would like a replacement for your Windows Task Manager that provides all the information contained in this website at your fingertips, check out The Ultimate Troubleshooter.
As a reviewer famously said : "The Ultimate Troubleshooter is like having a $100/hour computer consultant right there with you, every minute of the day, every day of the week, for a one-off fee of just $27.50".
