You have a lot of programs running at startup that you do not need to - you could just start a lot of them manually when you need them

There are one or two things in your startup I'm not sure of, unfortunately it's nearly 1am here and time I logged off for the night

One possibility - C:\Program Files\LeapFTP\LeapFTP.exe

could this be downloading files which you have queued ?

Other programs such as this could be downloading updates - C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\evntsvc.exe

good luck

See here :

Read through your startup list and check for those entries in the list at Pacs Portal to see exactly what you can remove safely.

This startup is totally suspect:

Supastatus = C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Connection Wizard\status.exe

There is NO Internet Explorer file called Status.exe.

Go to Start > Run > Msconfig,and uncheck this one on the Startup tab.

Click OK, close Msconfig and reboot.

Next, go to C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Connection Wizard, and rename status.exe to status.bak

And I'd like a copy of that file for analysis, please.

Would you mind terribly sending me a (zipped up) copy of Status.exe (or Status.bak) for analysis?

I'd be vey grateful for that file. I'll PM you with my e-mail addie.

I would bet on TkBellExe, part of the Real that gives you live updates

Yup, it says it's from "Supanet":

Appears to be harmless, but I would leave it unchecked, as I doubt it needs to be running.

It may even be responsible for that internet activity you've been noticing.
