Sorry for the confusion, but I was thinking by cleaning the PC is will result the PC in a faster mode? I think what is slowing it would be pretty self explanatory (what the programs I suggest doing, fixes the cause of the slowness) tuneup will do exactly what is needed for the startup and you cannot really "incorrectly" use it and for the purpose I mentioned was only to limit the programs starting up only way you can go wrong there is by disabling your security fro starting up,etc...
The computer is cleaned CamTheMan, what is needed to know is not only what is starting but what is slowing the computer down.
Tuneup will not show everything. And if used incorrectly it will add more processes that start with windows, slowing the computer down even more.
Tuneup will show only basically what is starting as a program. It will not show the processes and more that affect a computer's performance.

Again, I'm only trying to help. I suggest uninstalling Mcafee from the people I've helped it causes alot of problems it offers poor protection. But forgive me I didn't mean to take this topic from you I only wanted to include things you didn't include in your first post.. But like you were saying there's many steps I was just rushing sorry.
You are saying to uninstall this person's Antivirus?
That would be a mistake.
Without complete instructions on what to do about virus' and choosing a antivirus service.
There is nothing wrong with McAfee.
A wider range of understanding different programs and also things that the computer is doing that will not show up in tuneup.
It takes more then one program to help a computer.
What I posted is just a start.
One has to start somewhere and this is a very good place to start.
With the program I posted in the first post.
Untill you hijacked this thread making it basically unusable for some people.
Mainly the person who started the topic.
We can only suggest things to do Cam.
And make what we post palatable and inviting for the person with the question or problem.
One has to be willing to trust the person offering help.
This would need care and taking things slowly.
Thinking through what you are going to post.
Only offering part of a step is trouble to add to whatever is the need.
GeeksToGo is about helping people and the trust that this site has built over the years is phenomenal.
And I'm sure your intent is not to bring this kind of confidence down.
I know you want to help.
When helping others help, try to see where they are trying to take the person and learn from there.
You are certainly welcome to add input.
But to draw the person in a different direction then the original helper is taking them, is confusing for them as you know.
Unless you know exactly what the problem is, then it has to be taken a step at a time to eliminate or illuminate problems.
download this to your desktop and unzip it-
no install required
and it's an easy way to see what is happening
very basic but effective
