There are a lot that can be disabled from starting which should help the speed. Yahoo problem may be a cache problem and you might try clearing your browser cache.

You can do it manually or use something,like ATF or TFC.

How is your startup list now, pls after my post 89.
malwarebytes startup lite is quite good. I have never known it disable anything that it should not do.
It does occasionally miss one or two that could be disabled at startup, but with the amount you had running, my guess is that now you should only have five approx, having looked at the list

Now I can't open "paint" to show you the start up list. The hourglass comes up for a few seconds, then goes away and it doesn't open.

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 or Save in some versions.
6: Save AutoRuns.txt file to known location like your Desktop.
7: Attach to your next reply.

You have NOT run startup lite, as if you had many of these entries would be unchecked.
The link was in my post 89

It is HERE now

When you run startup lite, it gives you the choice of which items to disable at startup.
The recommended action is laready shown on the screen.
If you then agree that action, when you next boot the computer, a message will appear, saying you are running in selective startup. Do you wish to continue.
etc. If you choose to then return to nornal startup, you will then go back to the full list of startup items which startup lite disabled.
What you do is to click to check the small box DO NOT show this message again.

I suspect, what you are doing is running startup lite, then either NOT accepting its recommendations OR returning to normal startup.

When you FIRST ran it, what was the report.
Do this please.
1. Have a look again at startup items - are they all checked.
2. If so run startup lite - Agree the actions shown by clicking continue.
3. Reboot,
4. When the message appears, click to check the box - do not show this message again.
5. type msconfig in run and then look at the startup items.
HOW many are now checked to run on startup

I'm going to wait to see what the results of the startuplite are before advising on the autoruns because we are double doing the same thing.
Follow Macboatmasters instructions and I will step in if needed. :D

The first time I recall there were 3 items in a blue background. The last two times ther was only one item to disable at start up and it was something about google. I don't get the option to check about the message. All the items to run at start up are checked, and there are 18 of them. I'm sorry if I'm not doing something correct, but I can't figure this one out.

6. Quick boots update
7. Reader
8. Adobe Arm
9. hpbpsttp

Click Apply and OK

PLS check which firewall you are using.


I HAVE never known startup lite not to select many of these.
When you have done it pls post the screenshot of the startup items again.
