I'm helping a friend try to gain some free RAM and CPU on his HP Mini Notebook. I primarily work on a Mac but am literate on Windows as well. I went to msconfig to see what all was starting and stopped Java Web Start, HP CloudDrive (ZumaDrive), iTunes and Quicktime, and some others.
My question today is, when I restarted the computer after applying the settings, Java web start and zuma drive started up again eventhough I disabled them from startup. For Java, I forced quit it and it opened right back up again.
Why would these services start and restart automatically even though I'm disabling them from startup and forcing quit them. Would HP services be monitoring these and restarting them where needed?
