Hi, my name is Luke, and this is what applications should start up when a computer is turned on. By default, Windows will start any applications it needs to run or any services to help the Windows operating system. However, there's a few other applications you might like to start up when your computer leads like your antivirus software or possibly even dropbox. One way to check what your personal applications are that are going to start when the computer starts is by clicking on the start bar, going to all programs and then scrolling down to where you see a folder called start up. In here you can drop programs that will start when Windows starts up. Right click to open and here you can see I've put a shortcut to my dropbox which will then initialize dropbox every time the computer starts up. And that's it.
