Are you looking to try and cut back on the programs that are running in the background?

Ok then let's do this a different way.


Download Autoruns from the link in my signature below:
1: Extract the Autoruns Zip file contents to a folder.
2: Double-click the "Autoruns.exe".
3: Click on the "Everything" tab
4: Remove any entries that mention "File Not Found" by right-clicking the entry and select Delete.
5: Go to File then to Export As.
6: Save AutoRuns.txt file to know location.
7: Attach to your next reply.

Save it as a notepad document and attach it that way. Sorry I need to figure why it is not showing that export button.

The export issue in autoruns seems to be a version change.
I have ver 9.50 on 1 computer and it has "export" and "export as"
Version 9.56 on my other computer has no exports.....only save.

Open Autoruns, click on "Logon" tab, and UN-check:

+ "NvCplDaemon"
+ "QuickTime Task"
+ "Comcast Universal Caller ID.lnk"
+ "AOL Fast Start"
+ "Shockwave Updater"




The next file needs to be manually disabled and is only needed if you use multi language on your keyboard. If you do then skip the step.


To turn off just ctfmon.exe go to:

Control Panel then to Regional and Language Options

Click on the Languages Tab then click the Details button

Click on the Advanced tab

Check the box that says Turn off advanced text services option

Click A and then OK





When done restart computer and then:




Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop
  • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.


Download Auslogics Defrag from the link in my signature below. Auslogics Defrag in my opinion is better because:
It does a more comprehensive job at Defragging
It will actually show you what it is doing
At the end of working it will show you how much speed you picked up
You can view a online log of the files that Auslogics defragged


How is the system running now
