    Have you looked as to what applications start automatically in your computer as it starts up?

    Take the time to review and turn off what you don’t want. For example, here on one of my home PCs, I disable Skype for Business. It was installed by an Office suite a while back and I don’t use it on this pc so I disable it.

    In Windows 10, we’re going to use the “Windows 10 way” to review the apps that are listed for startup. Click on the search box, type in Startup Apps and review the resulting listing of applications. Review in particular the ones that say “high impact”. Disable what you don’t want launching and then reboot your computer to see the impact.

    So what apps are listed in your computer?
