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

+ "Adobe ARM" "Adobe Reader and Acrobat Manager" "Adobe Systems Incorporated" "c:\program files\common files\adobe\arm\1.0\adobearm.exe"
+ "Adobe Reader Speed Launcher" "Adobe Acrobat SpeedLauncher" "Adobe Systems Incorporated" "c:\program files\adobe\reader 9.0\reader\reader_sl.exe"




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

I see two partitions. C is the OS but what is on the D drive?
Do you plan on keeping the D partition if you switch over to a server?

Done.
As to partition D: I am not sure that I need it. What would you suggest?

I do not set up servers, but my suggestion would be to minimize C (shrink C) and then increase D to its maximum.
Then use D for the server needs. This keeps everything separate.

IS the system running better now since the steps were taken?
Do you know whats on partition D?
Is there data you need to save from it?
Without the installation cd your other option is to go into Add\Remove Programs in the Control Panel and one by one start un-installling programs you don't want or need anymore.
