A service call today found a Windows computer with three cloud storage programs running in the background.  The more things running in your computer’s background, the slower it will be. I ran Windows 10 Task Manager and then startup to see what was loading automatically at startup.  I disabled the two my client never uses and left their main one. The programs were Microsoft’s One Drive, Google Drive and Dropbox. My client only uses one of them so I disabled the other two.  Now the computer starts up faster and the two disabled programs are still available if my client wants to use them.  The two programs just won’t be using resources as soon as the computer starts up and then slowing it down.
