Notice down here at the bottom, you have the option of booting into safe mode, if you want. You can boot it into safe mode minimal, or you can use one of these other safe boot options, such as active directory repair, or safe boot with networking. Over here on the right, you also have the option of booting without a GUI, which will cause windows to hide the graphical user interface during the boot up process. You'll just see text-based screen displayed. Now some people like to use this option because it does decrease the amount of time required for the system to start up, although in my experience, it doesn't really save that much time,and so I usually just leave that option turned off and just go ahead and display the graphical screen. One option that is extremely useful is this one right here, bootlogging. If you enable this option, this option is really useful in situations where you're having a problem with a particular service or devicethat's not behaving properly when you start the system up. If you enable bootlogging, you can thenreview all the different log messages that are created during the boot process, and hopefully get some clue as to what is going on. I'm going to turn this option off for now. We also have the Services tab. On the Services tab, we see a list of all the services that are currently installed on the system, and what their status is. Whether they're running, or whether they're currently stopped. And notice over here on the left we have a check box next to each individual service. If you suspect that one of these services is causing problems during startup, you can selectively disable that service. For example, we could come down here to windows audio and turn this service off. This will disable that service during the next boot process. The next time we boot the system up,windows will not try to start this particular service. We'll go ahead and turn that back on, because I actually do want that enabled. Next we have the Startup tab. Now in older versions of windows, like Windows 7, the Startup tab contains a list of all the applications that will be started automatically on boot. I've switched over to windows 7 system here, let's go ahead and start MSCONFIG on this system, and when I do, we see a list of all the different startup applications that are going to be automatically loaded when the system boots. And if we suspect that one of these is causing a problem, just like with services, we can turnthat particular service off, and then the next time the system boots, that particular start up application will not be loaded. This can also be useful in situations where you just have too dang many of these startup applications

running, and it's slowing the system down. By turning these startup applications off, we can optimize the startup process, and hopefully make the system boot a little faster.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
