how many of these "protip" articles are gonna just include the same crap? YES! We know about msconfig, and services.msc. Now enough is enough! It's not a trade secret anymore, never was.

Install windows 7!

(Note: There is meant to be humour in this statement, if you didn't think it was funny, please change "Windows 7" to "Windows XP", "OSX", "Linux", "AmigaOS" or whatever Operating system you get hard over).

Upgrade your PC! No, 512 megs of ram on your PIII will not cut it.

One thing that people forget that can really down startup is hidden task managers. For one thing, Vista, by default is set to create a restore point everytime you startup.
