The whole issue of editing msconfig to improve speed is here:
Good msconfig instructions:

Your situation is mostly related to Unnecessary Services starting up.
I think you have Services showing as Running in msconfig that should be disabled there.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Edit msconfig Services
  • Go to start, type msconfig in the search box and press enter.
  • If prompted, click on Continue for the UAC prompt, or type in the administrator's password.
  • Click on the Services tab.
  • Check the box labeled "Hide all Microsoft Services"
  • Find any Service listed as Running when it is no longer relevant, and Uncheck it.
    (In your case, you may want to uncheck any Running entries related to Spybot, SDTray,Norton Online backup, utorrent, Amico Singlun, for example)
    Do you use Google drive?
    Do you actually use SunJavaUpdate Schedule? It never even worked for me.
  • Click on Apply and OK.
  • Click on the Restart button to apply.

You can also check the Startup tab to see if the system is trying to start non-existent programs.
They can be disabled the same way.

After you get the startups and services cleaned up a bit, you can use Winpatrol to keep the system tuned up in a much simpler, easier manner.
