    If I try to launch a program shortly after Windows 7 boots up, the program will open but every time I click in the window, the screen flashes and the window shows (not responding) up top. The screen will flash again shortly and look available but again, if I try to do anything the process repeats.

    I have to close the program and reopen it. Any suggestions on this?

    Your best option is to cut down on the number of programs that Windows is loading along with itself. A lot of programs will help you do this, including Windows Defender (which Windows recomends for the task), and CCleaner (ccleaner.com). By reducing the number of such programs, you computer should be ready for use much faster.

    Services you don't need can also be disabled to the same effect, but be careful. Disabling a critical service could cause the computer to fail.
