Whew strap in cause there's a lot we need ot get off your autoruns. This is slowing you down for sure.
First thing is though i see you have Avast, Symantec and Windows Defender running all at the same time. This is really causing a bind on system resources. I would suggest getting rid of windows defender and if you are using symantecs Norton Av i would uninstall it also. Avast can do the job for you and it is free and smaller on the footprint. It is a lot easier on the system resources also.
Now lets move on tot he Autoruns.
, click on "Logon"
tab, and UN-check

+ "Adobe Photo Downloader"
+ "Adobe Reader Speed Launcher"

To turn off just ctfmon.exe
go to:Control Panel

Download TFC by OldTimer

- 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
