To perform clean boot means to disable all startup programs. You may do this process in two ways, viz. 1) Using Windows Registry Editor (commonly abbreviated as, RegEdit); and 2) Using Task Manager if you’re using Windows 10/ 8.1/ 8; or System Configuration (often abbreviated as, MSCONFIG) for earlier versions of Windows.
Method # 1: Check for a reference entry to BackgroundContainer.dll file in Startup tab of the Task Manager. For earlier versions, fire up MSCONFIG through Run dialog box and disable all startup items.
Method # 2: Using RegEdit, check out following subkeys for references to BackgroundContainer.dll startup file.
