Hi there

It sounds like something which is being loaded at startup may be slowing the system down.
Can you go to Start->Run.. and type msconfig in the box, click <OK>

Let me know what you have listed in the Startup tab of msconfig.

Try third party, get Tuneup2006, i use it centralises alot of the tricks you need and makes em stick although it should anyway but does sometimes rever back, try tuneup there is a free trial which is really all you need to implement the fixes and optimisations.

Its similar yes but ive always found tuneup to be a little better, the changes persist even after the app is uninstalled.
