    Please do the following so we can see what the startup list and services list looks like.

    Click Start, then type MSCONFIG in the search or run box, then press the Enter key.
    When the small "System Configuration Utility" window appears, click the "Startup" tab.
    If the "Startup Item" column isn't wide enough to see the entire name of any of them, widen the column.
    Submit an image/screenshot of that window.

    Click Start, then type SERVICES.MSC in the search or run box, then press the Enter key.
    When the "Services" window appears, expand it so you can see the list more clearly.
    If the "Name" column isn't wide enough to see the entire name of any of them, widen the column.
    Submit an image/screenshot of that window.

    Click Start, then type MSCONFIG in the search or run box, then press the Enter key.
    When the small "System Configuration Utility" window appears, click the "Startup" tab.
    Remove the checkmark in these startup entries:

    igfxtray
    igfxpers
    hkcmd
    GrooveMonitor
    dumprep 0 -u
    igfxpers
    (blank entry)
    dumprep 0 -k
    CCleaner


    After you're done, click Apply - OK - Exit Without Restart.

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    Click Start, then type SERVICES.MSC in the search or run box, then press the Enter key.
    When the "Services" window appears, expand it so you can see the list more clearly.
    Double-click these service entries, one at a time, to open its properties window, then change "Startup Type" to Manual, then click Apply:

    Alerter
    Bonjour Service
    Computer Browser
    Distributed Link Tracking Client
    Error Reporting Service
    Help And Support
    HID Input Service
    Logical Disk Manager
    Microsoft .NET Framework NGEN v4.0
    SAS Core Service
    Update Service
    Windows Installer
    Wondershare - - -


    After you're done, close the services window.

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    Restart the computer.
    When the System Configuration Utility appears and advises the computer is in diagnostic/selective startup mode, ignore the message.
    Put a checkmark in the box in the lower left of that window before you click OK to close it.
    Allow the computer to completely settle down from the restart.

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    Repeat the instructions in post #2 so I can see what the new startup list and services list looks like.
    And make sure this time to widen the "Name" column in the services list so their entire names can be seen.

    Did you complete the instructions in post #4 for the startup list and services list?
    Is your computer now running any better and faster?

    And make sure this time to widen the "Name" column in the services list so their entire names can be can be seen, browsing seems faster
