I have been reading and the registry for me a non geek is scary. With step by step instructions I can go in and change something if I have to. I know the geeks say not to clean the registry to leave it alone...
Because I have a bigger hard drive and more ram than my last computer which had 40 gb hard drive and 256MB of ram about all I do is go in and run disk clean up because it defrags on it's schedule which I thought was a lot but...
Any, lately my mouse has been sticking or leaping around at times. And things seem slow and the internet freezes sometimes. I ran a malware program and found nothing my anti virus McAfee internet sectruity finds nothing.
What are some other suggestions on why this is happening?
BTW this is a 64 bit NTFS system Vista Home with 8GB ram
Thank You....

OK Everest looked good so nothing to do with that. Now to move on with the second set of instructions for Autoruns.

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


+ "Adobe Reader Speed Launcher"
X "SunJavaUpdateSched"




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
Please do not run any other Auslogics programs other then this one as they may cause unwanted results.

That will work.
I would suggest you run both the TFC and the Defrag at least once a week depending on your internet browsing and the adding and deleting of data on your system.
How is the system running now?

Yes everything seems to be like new. The startup and shutdown was a lot faster. Programs pop right open etc.
I will run those programs every week.
And again Thank You for answering me so quickly.
