the first thing we are going to do is turn off indexing ....its a resource hog and if you aren't
searching for things on your computer 10 times a day it will only slow down your system....
click on start
click on C: drive....properties
...on the general tab..uncheck ...allow indexing on this drive....if you do not have the box on your system...
then START...RUN...type in SERVICES.MSC...then OK...scroll down until you find INDEXING
SERVICE...click on it and in the general tab set it to DISABLED...then exit....
then go to START
...type in MSCONFIG
...then click on OK
or press ENTER
click on START UP TAB
.....if its a tower...uncheck everything
[b]EXCEPT your AV and firewall
...if its a laptop you have to be careful about what you uncheck
or your touch pad and wireless and things like that will not function for you..
google each start up item to decide if you need it to load with windows...unchecking them does not
remove them ..they are still available to use...
