Startup database

This is a really useful database that lists common programs that run at start up. It's all very well being told that you should cut down on the amount of 'stuff' that you have running in the background, but it's another thing all together to decide whether 'sphtherlk.sde' is a stupid superfluous little program, or something incredibly critical that will cause your computer to blow up if it isn't kept running continuously. So yeah, run msconfig, look at your list of start up processes and then search for them here! I just got rid of about 10 processes, so yay!

(Yes, this kind of thing does make me excited. But I'm an IT student, so it's ok.)
