Edit Startup Programs Of An OS On A External HD?

Apr 27, 2012

My laptop crashed and I suspected it could be due to a bugged startup peogram issue.

I connected my laptop HD to another laptop, but I couldn't find any method to enter the msconfig of the Windows OS of the connected HD.


Edit Startup Programs

Jul 27, 2009

I know about MSCONFIG.

the problem is, when you use MSCONFIG to deselect programs from starting up, you force your computer into "Safemode".

I once used a ms command that allowed me to disable enable all programs that start up with windows, other than MSCONFIG.

It did not force my windows into Safemode.

which command is it that allows you to disable programs from starting up with windows,

BESIDES MSCONFIG ? anyone know.?

[64bit] Cannot Uncheck Startup/ Edit Startup Entries

Mar 15, 2011

Trying to disable some of the bloatware that came with my HP G62, as well as disable unneeded auto-updates, and have been blocked from doing so.Ran msconfig, startup entries... Unchecked, hit "apply" and they just become checked again. (Ran as administrator on admin account)Tried "Tuneup Utilities." Same effect.Have been trying to disable Yahoo Messenger from starting and it just keeps on starting.I have unchecked the startup box in the pref dialog of the prog.Is my admin account not really admin? (No other accounts on the computer)

Startup Programs Not Opening During Startup

Nov 29, 2009

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

I have CPU-Z, Hardware Monitor Pro and Resource Monitor shortcuts in the startup folder.

If I go to MSCONFIG I can see that the items are there to be started during startup.

Getting Programs To Run At Startup With UAC?

Aug 23, 2011

There are some programs that I need to run at startup, but they tend to need to be run as administrator. I have dragged the shortcut into the startup folder, but this doesn't start the program. Some apps that I need are RealTemp, Gigabyte Dynamic Energy Saver2, and Gigabyte Easy Tune 6.East Tune 6 does seem to start itself at startup, even though it needs to be run as administrator if I start it from it's shortcut, and I don't get a UAC window, so there must be a way to configure startup for these kind of things. The DES2 app also runs at startup, but not always for some reason, so I would like to add it to the startup list to make sure it's running. I have followed the windows instructions for adding programs to startup, and I have also checked the "run as administrator" check box under compatibility, but neither of these seems to do anything.

I'm not sure why you have a "run as administrator" check box if you still get asked if you want to run as admin even when it is checked. Why have a feature that doesn't do anything? I'm not sure that the entire UAC feature is supposed to do anyway, other than annoy you when you do something that microsoft would rather you not do.

External HDD Opens Auto-play On Startup

Jan 14, 2013

I bought a Toshiba P875-7200s last month. I have two external portable hard drives (a simple drive 250GB and a WD 250GB). The laptop has two powered USB 3 ports (for charging devices when the computer is off) and two USB 3 unpowered ports. I have the WD HD plugged into one of the powered ports and every time I start the computer the autoplay comes up asking what I want to do with the WD drive.I want to keep the autoplay function (opening CD, DVD, Photo files (which I do often)) but I want to stop this opening with my HD when I turn on the computer. I have seen numerous fixes for this on the web and have tried many of them, but none have worked.

Can't Open Links From Any External Programs

I'm currently working with a laptop running a new copy of Windows 7 Professional (not the one in my system specs). Mozilla Firefox is the default browser, and for some reason, I can't get any links I click on in external programs to open. I click on a link in Outlook, Messenger, or any other program, and the focus switches off of that program, but nothing else happens. Firefox is working just fine otherwise. Any ideas or suggestions?

How To Change Startup Programs

Apr 22, 2012

Before Windows 7 I could simply go to Task Manager, then to the Startup tab to check or uncheck whatever programs I didn't want running every time I turned my computer on. But now with this OS that tab isn't present in TM, and a search of "Startup" doesn't bring up anything.

I got directions telling me to go into folders in Windows Explorer that don't exist, so that dead-ended.

Can Startup Programs Run As Administrator ?

Oct 6, 2009

I have a couple of programs (Logitech Setpoint is one) which need to run as administrator in order to work in some programs (e.g. Visual Studio 2005). They are set to run at start-up, however since I've set them to run as administrator, they don't run.

Is there any way to get these to run at start up?

Cannot Block Startup Programs

Dec 11, 2009

in windows vista I could block startup programs i didn't want using up system resources, but with windows 7 I cant find a way of doing that, I understand its always a good idea to have normal startup mode instead of selective in misconfiguration. but in vista I could simply block programs in component services but the ones I want to block are not even listed in windows 7! is this the wrong place to look or is blocking startup programs not an option in windows 7?

Suggestions For Delaying Startup Programs?

Apr 30, 2012

I just purchased a new Acer 4830TG (i5 2.5 GHz) and immediately replaced the HD with a SanDisk Extreme (550 MB/s read, 510 MB/s write).I have certain programs in the Startup folder- Excel workspace (6 spreadsheets) for my business, Word, Firefox (with approx 35 tabs) and Thunderbird. I like to hit the power button, enter my password, then go make my coffee and come back to find everything loaded and my morning emails all downloaded (4 different accounts).Except now Firefox and Thunderbird are loading so fast the wireless network has not finished connecting before they start sending requests, and of course I am getting network connection errors.I can't believe I am actually having to ask this, but does anyone have any suggestions for freebie programs that can delay the loading of programs in the startup folder? Or tell me how to write a batch file of some kind that call these programs with a delay scripted in?

Startup Extremely Slow When External Hard Drive Attached?

Nov 21, 2010

i just bought an external HD drive and it's very good but ... When I attach my external hard drive start up becomes painfully slow , like at least 5 times slower !. I get past the BIOS load screen fine but once the computer gets to the Starting Windows screen it sits there for a good 30-60 seconds. Then when the screen goes black (as it's going from the "starting windows" screen with the little windows 7 icon to the login screen) it again sits for anywhere from 1-2minutes, if not longer.i have an old external HD and I've been using it for 2 years and never had this problem !another thing when i click on " safely remove the HD " before i reboot and without taking the usb off the computer just stats normally !

Specific Windows 7 Programs Unresponsive At Startup

Jul 24, 2012

I've had this windows 7 laptop for less than a year now, with no problems at all. I7 processor, good speed/graphics etc. Recently however (about a week ago) I turned it on and although the internet works, very specific (and all seemingly windows related) problems are reoccurring and making the laptop unusable. The first thing i notice when I start it up (I'll write it all because I can't seem to google the right solution for this) is that i get a black screen after entering login details for about 2 mins (used to be very quick). Then it loads and i notice the wifi icon doesn't show connected or anything it just has the loading circle over it and it stays like this (even now as I'm clearly on the internet typing this).

No gadgets launch but eventually i get my desktop. This is were it starts getting annoying because, if I open windows update the window opens blank and just freezes, not the whole computer just the update window, same for msconfig, system restore and other windows programs such as windows media player. I can view installed updates (and I'm thinking removing one of these might be the solution as it was around the time I updated windows that this started happening) which is strange as it seems some sections aren't working at all but some are.

To top it off I turned it on about 5 days ago and had the "this is not a genuine windows product" in the bottom right of my background and thought "that's annoying I'll have to fix it tommorow". So i turn my laptop on the next day, ready to fix it having done nothing, and everything is running perfect, i can see my gadgets, I can open WMP and i can look for updates. Restart my computer later that evening and i'm back to the point of nothing working and still there today. I've done a full system virus scan, a boot scan, a defrag and everything.

Scheduled Programs At Startup That Need Admin Rights?

Jun 17, 2012

When I start Windows, programs that need administrator rights don't start as they did before. Before I describe the problem I'm having I would like to state that I searched and found similar problems all over the web, but not any solutions that worked for me. Now let's get on with the problem.The situation is as follows: programs that need admin rights and which I set to run at log on (like PeerBlock and TopWinPrio) don't start automatically anymore. I don't get a UAC message, I get nothing, they just don't launch.A few days ago everything worked fine. Since then I've run CCleaner and Gamebooster 3.5b. I did clean the registry with CCleaner but used the backup of the registry CCleaner made after I noticed this behavior (so I think the registry clean with CCleaner could not be the issue). I've also used the 'normal clean' function of CCleaner, maybe this caused the problems?

I think the problems have something to do with messed up admin rights on my account. The programs startup fine when I disable UAC, but I'd rather not do thatAlso, when I log onto the administrator account, the programs startup fine. I can start the programs manually after I'm logged in, but I'd rather have them startup automatically.I've tried the following to solve it:- sfc / scannow command - did not solve it- check if my account has admin rights - as far as I can see this is the case- look for restore points - this is stupid, I know, but it seems I have deleted them with either Tuneup or CCleaner

Laptop Starts Off Very Slow Despite Having 4 Programs At Startup

Jan 15, 2013

I've been having this problem with my laptop for a long time now its an hp pavillion dv4-4068LA. I just restored my system because it was very slow despite having tuneup utilities 2013 working on disabling start up programs. Everything was great when I restored my system until I started installing programs again including tuneup utilities and it actually did more damage than good to my start ups so I decided to permanently uninstall the program and do everything with Windows functions like msconfig and stuff. My startups are way faster now but not as good as they used to be, after 10 minutes of using my computer everything becomes really fast like the old times but I would like to have this speed right at the start up because I know it's possible.

Extremely Slow Startup, Programs Not Responding?

Feb 9, 2013

Should be a relatively fast machine takes forever to start-up / load apps. For example, 9:10 from power on to loading Outlook. I've tried everything I could think of -- CCleaner, alwarebytes, disk cleanup / optimization, sfc / scannow, pruning down any startup items, power set to max performance, triple-checking all drivers are up to date, etc. Once the system is "warmed up" and I'm using it constantly, everything is fine -- quick, responsive, etc. If I leave for 10 min or more and come back, even though nothing has been set to power down / go to sleep, programs (already open) don't respond, etc., until the system "warms up" again. On startup / initial launches, and when coming back to the computer, CPU usage never gets very high (watching the CPU Usage gadget or Task Manager).My wife's computer, a slightly slower Dell bought at the same time and configured the same way, doesn't have any of these problems. (Mine is a Studio XPS 7100 Phenom II X4 820, 12G)
