Disabling startup programs makes your computer boot a bit faster.

Sony VAIO Care, an application pre-installed on most Sony laptops, is designed to automatically check for computer updates and to assist you with troubleshooting and maintenance. The application is configured to start as soon as the computer powers on. Although Sony VAIO Care is helpful, it is not necessary for it to launch automatically, as having too many programs launch at startup can cause your computer to run slowly. You can disable VAIO Care so it does not run at startup.


Step 1

Click on "Start," then click "All Programs." Click on the "Accessories" folder.
