In the example above, a relatively clean Windows 10, we have five start-up entries: Microsoft OneDrive: the synchronization software for OneDrive. Spotify: a pre-installed program that came with Windows 10. Task Manager: Task manager is itself configured to run automatically (something I do). VirtualBox Guest Additions: a part of the VirtualBox software I use to run different versions of Windows and other operating systems. More items...What programs are necessary at startup?
Typically the only program you need to have running on startup for a Windows machine is an anti-virus program. All other startup programs are unnecessary and should probably be removed. Most of the core operating system programs that are set to run on startup are included in another list categorized as services anyways.
