How can I disable all unnecessary startup items?
- Open MSCONFIG
- Under the Services tab, check "Hide all Microsoft services"
- Uncheck all services but those necessary for AccessData's software (typically leaving only CodeMeter, PostgreSQL, Oracle, MSSQL, or anything starting with "AccessData")
- Under the Startup tab, uncheck all items but those necessary for AccessData's software (typically leaving only CodeMeter)
If AccessData's software works after performing the steps above, you can methodically re-enable items in the Services and Startup tabs to help determine what program or service may be conflicting with AccessData's products.
