When Is The Last Background-program Loaded?

5 posts in this topic

Hi all!

I've a slow Notebook which starts a lot of background tasks every time i boot.

I want to know (better: i want to display a short message (traytip; messagebox or something like this)) when the last background-task has been loaded and the cpu is near 1-4 percent.

I make a small program which will just display "Ready" in a messagebox and i've placed it in the run-section as the last entry. I named it Z-Ready-Info.exe.

But - it wasn't the last one. I have to wait 2-3 minutes more ....

How can i get the last action a pc takes in a boot-time? :think:

CU

Hi Valuater,

good idea. My messagebox is not the last action - but nearly the last one. I have to wait 5 to 10 seconds more until the cpu is going to 2-3 percent.

This is good enough for me. :think:

Thanks!

HKCU\...\RunOnce. Name your entry starting with a z should be the last item executed.

Edit:

strikeout Once for continual operation

If you know what all of the things are that are going to load you could have a loop statement that checks to make sure all of the processes exist and when they do then to make your messagebox/traytip/whatever.
