My lil bro really wants to use this computer, but the startup is really slow.All those items on the system tray opens up. I went on msconfig but I dont know what to uncheck and what to leave on. Going on internet explorers/firefox really takes a long time and then sometimes when watching youtube videos it can usually handle 360p resolution , but now I always turn it to 240 since it lags. How can I fix these problems?

I know the only solution is to buy a new laptop >_> but I'm kinda low on budget.
