A

A startup program on Windows 7 is a program that has been configured to be launched at the system startup time automatically.

When you install new software applications, many of them will be configured some startup programs. This allows the program to be launched immediately when you start your system, and stay running all the time.

The downside of having startup applications is that:

  • Your system will take longer to start due to the time spend to launch startup applications.
  • Your system performance will be impacted due to the memory occupied by startup applications.
  • Your system will be less secure because some startup applications communicate with other computers on the Internet.
