    if your comp is loading slow then try Start\Run and type in 'msconfig' and hit enter and check the Startup tab. You don't want too many programs loading at startup. remove check boxes from pointless stuff loading, such as; qttask.exe (quick time), yahoo browser/browser, spy sweeper, realsched.exe, etc... try this and reply if it loads faster or the same.

    1, go to start

    2, click on run

    3, type in msconfig

    4, click on selective startup

    5, uncheck the box that says load startup items

    6, click on the tab that says services

    7, then click on the box that says hide all microsoft services

    8, then uncheck everything in the list, but the items that say HP , AVG, and what ever isp you have, if you dont see them in there, then dont worry, just continue to step 9

    9, apply and click ok then restart

    msconfig is a safe easy to use tool, if you ever have a problem with it you can open the msconfig window and select normal startup and all msconfig changes will be undone.

    So, since this poster is obviously running Symantec programs, you are seriously suggesting that they "just" disable them and "don;t worry"!

    i wanted to thank everyone who offered up some things to do....

    After I posted this, and before I got any replies, I went on that computer and unchecked some of the boxes for programs using msconfig, just like what was suggested. I had done that in the past, so msconfig is not new to me.

    I unchecked a few programs, but what my concern is with what is still running. I understand unchecking things to get them to stop running from the start, what I needed help with is getting rid of these things. There are a couple things in there that do not show any names (they are blank programs that start up) I hope that makes sense

    So, what i would like to know is how do i get rid of some of these excess programs that are running? and are all of these programs necessary? And is it perhaps some programs in the registry? If it was my computer, I woudl know, but that one was not at all. When I started working on it, it literally took 10 minutes to start up. I have cut it in half, but i just thought perhaps things in the registry could be removed to cut down on things running.

    I appreciate all the replies and am looking forward to what others have to say!

    (i have my pc fully msconfig tweaked, i usally only start up with 10 running processes now. i posted the tweak on my site, (the tweak in mostly focused to hardcore pc gamers or if you have a dual boot pc and can have 1 os deticated to gaming and other cpu intensive programs)

    a blank entry happens to msconfig once in a while.

    to fix it you will have to use regedit.

    go to this location

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupreg

    you will see all of the items in your startup

    look through all of them and next to "item" you will see the name

    look for a item that has that area blank

    if it is blank, msconfig will have no info on that item

    you can add any name you want in it (there used so you can identify in msconfig)


    PS it is also good to check here because some spyware will edit this location that way it can have the same name as a needed item, (spyware does this to sometimes stop you from unchecking them thinking it is a vital process)

    so it is good to check the command line it uses so you know which file is really being used


    heres a screenshot of what im talking about
    http://img527.imageshack.us/img527/3228/untitled18zi.jpg

    PS if there no name next to the "Item" then it will be a blnk entry in the msconfig window.

    if you find one, you can copy and paste the command and i can tell you the msconfig name for that item
