    I have found that my computer has really slowed down when starting up and for a little while after that. I was talking to someone about it and they suggested to find the full startup list and delete the unneeded thing but he forgot how to get to it. Would u have any ideas how to find it.

    Go here http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/index.html
    and download, install and run startuplist.

    THe other, but less comprhensive way is to go to Start/Run and type in "msconfig" without the quotes and select the Start tab.

    Uncheck what you don't need there.
