    Microsoft Security Essentials is really the only entry there that requires a check mark in MSCONFIG.

    Once you've removed the check marks, click OK.

    Reboot the machine.

    Your machine can hold up to 4GB DDR3 1066 MHz SDRAM.

    Maxing this out would improve performance.

    Use Crucial's System Scanner to determine your system's current configuration as well as suggested changes.

    You do realize there is a wireless startup tool in there, that can cause problems...somtimes those programs take control over the windows protocol..hence why i reccomended the stripped down "driver only" setup this way windows will resume control over his wireless system. Also the touchpad as I said can be touch and go... Some machines I didnt have a problem, others features on the pad such as the scroll features stopped. Also his hotkey tools will be killed turning all this off. Just pointing this out...

    Apart from the good suggesstion by the shooter on memory, I would reccomend a registry defrag. The tool I used/do use is the auslogics defrag utility, not the "cleaner" just the defragger. What it does is take air out of a sponge and compress the size of your registry files so they load up quicker. I have an older version however it seems they offer a newer one now for free:

    Do NOT use the cleaner as they typically cause more harm then good.

    In response to new tech guy, the akamai netsession interface came from a driver that I recently installed which has to do with the graphics driver. I didn't turn the Bluetooth off since I'm using it quite often.
    And may I ask, is it safe to delete entries that display "File not found" on the image path column? Thanks,

    I think you can, usually their just dud entries that point to nomans land, though to be honest they dont hurt anything. Has cleaning the startup load helped any?
