What can I do to make my computer go faster?
My computer should be working perfectly as it's less than 1 year old that my parents bought it for me. It's been getting slow but yesterday after I used Avast: bootscan, something must have gone wrong that now it takes close to 10 seconds for it to go to another page while before it only took 1-3 seconds. I have Windows 7 Gateway computer.

I also need to know from the following links which services and processes I should end because my friend told me that it's one of the reasons why my computer is slow:

I have done defragment and disk free up space.

Also, this is another link to what my computer is:

I did that but it's still the same.

Also, if it's not too much, I would like to know what those services and process do because like I said before, my friend told me that it could be making my computer slow. The problem is I don't know which I should press "end process".

Sorry if I don't give enough information but since I lack a good amount of computer knowledge, it's hard to know what to put here to identify my problem.

Although your issue may seem similar there can be other factors that may need to be resolved.
By bumping on someone's topic it makes it confusing for the tech to understand who they are helping. This can in turn cause the wrong support to be given and can cause instability or worse to happen to your system.
Please post more information as to your exact issue in your topic. Include any error messages you get as well as your system specs. This will help us to assist you more efficiently.
Thank you for your cooperation.

alright click on start then go to search. In the search option type in RUN and press enter. when run command pops up type in msconfig and hit enter. After that go to startup tab= displays all the programs being loaded when you turn on the computer. Uncheck some of those then restart the computer and it should load a bit faster.

WildTarzan is right, except don't uncheck anything yet, list down (or take screenshots) of everything in that window and then we can advise which processes are safe to disable upon startup.

Secondly, go into My Computer, Right-Click on Local Disk (C:), Click Properties, then go to the tab Tools, under defragmentation click Defragment Now, Select (C:) and press Analyze Disk. Please post back results Posted Image

Are you still having problems with your issue?
It has been 15 days since your last response and I was wondering if the issue has been resolved?
If so can you explain how it was resolved so others may be able to fix it if they have the same issue.
If not please let us know and we can continue with helping you to resolve the issue.
