Windows 9 for a free upgrade for users of Windows 8

Windows 9 Multiple reports have suggested that Microsoft is considering the release of the next platform as a free download to certain existing Windows users. Some said that Windows 8 will get free Windows 9, while others claimed that the company is also considering some kind of special offers for existing users of Windows XP. A report published online Indonesian Detik said earlier this week that the president has confirmed MicrosoftIndonesia Andreas Diantoro this particular feature of Windows 9.

SINCE EARLY: Windows 9 can not come soon enough for Microsoft


According Diantoro, updating Windows 9 will be available free of charge to all users of existing Windows 8 once it's released. Apparently, users can easily install Windows Update 9 after downloading from Microsoft, which is like Apple OS  updates have been released to Macs for a few years now. For what it's worth, some of the recent leak of Windows 9 did say that Microsoft already has a tool in place that will allow users to easily perform software updates.

It is not clear if other Windows users who are in the earlier versions of the operating system will have other special offers, and real prices for Windows 9 are not yet revealed. Microsoft would be interested in moving as many people, and is no longer supported, Windows XP and Windows provide 9 as a free download can be a great incentive for some.

Microsoft will unveil Windows 9 and will soon release a technical preview of it. Recent leaks, including many videos have shown some of the main features that comes with Windows 9, including the return of the Start menu, the Cortana search assistant based on voice that is currently only available on Windows Phone, the Center for Notice, support for multiple desktops, and several other user interface improvements.

How to stop the automatic loading programs in Windows 7 and Windows 8

There is no direct correlation between the programs that load at startup and processes slow down your PC six hours later. Many autoloaders (programs that load automatically at startup) do their thing and then it closes properly. And some programs that are manually loaded long after the licensing process start running even after closing them.

However, most Windows PCs too many programs load at boot time. These certainly slow down the boot process. Some remain in operation and can reduce Windows. And some may cause conflicts and instability, although that is rare.

So let's see how we can cut autoloaders.

The fact that you like a program does not necessarily mean that you want it to work all the time? For example, regular readers know how much I like KeePass. But I turned off the autoloader because I just do not see the point. A password manager simply run when a password is required. On the other hand, the antivirus program has to ensure the PC constantly, so it is a legitimate autoloader.

Windows 8 significantly change the way you manage autoloaders. So, I'll give two separate instruction sets.

Windows 7 and earlier

Click Start, type msconfig and press Enter. This brings up the System Configuration page.

Click the startup tab to get a list of their autoloaders. Now you can uncheck those you do not want.

How to stop the automatic loading programs in Windows 7

But first, you have to figure out what each automatic charger. Generally, program name makes it obvious. But sometimes the names are unclear.

If the name is not very useful, you can usually get an idea by examining the manufacturer and columns in the table command. These will tell who published the software, and where the file is on your drive (usually the folder for a program that is installed). If all else fails, use your favorite search engine to find more information about the name.

Remember, you can always experiment. Uncheck something and see if that makes things better or worse. The last column, Date disabled, provides a record of what you just scored.

Windows 8

In the old desktop environment, click the taskbar and select Task Manager. Once you touch him, click the startup tab.

This table does not provide all the information the Msconfig old one, but is easier to read. And if you know where to look, the information is there.

How to stop the automatic loading programs in Windows 8

A particularly useful is the last column: the impact of initiation. Is it in vague terms-says is true-how much the program reduces the boot time. This can help you decide what to remove.

To disable an autoloader, press the right mouse button and select Disable.

And check out the other options in the context menu. Open file location where the program is located on your hard drive a good indication of who put him there shows. And if you really can not understand, select Search online to see what the Internet says about this program.

Unfortunately, this tool lacks information Start Date disabled. If you are going to experiment with various deactivation autoloaders, make a note about what just disabled. That way, if something goes wrong, you can fix it.
