Can you do a search for the boost speed and see if it shows it anywhere on the hard drive please.
Have you also checked in the Startup folder in the All Programs in the Start button at the bottom left?

If the above does not work then there is a fix located HERE
I don't know if it works but it's worth a try. There is a possibility it is still in the windows explorer on the C drive as a folder and maybe even in the registry.
Hopefully the fix or the folder will do the trick. I really don't want to try and do this through the registry if we don't have to.

This guidance is secondary to what rshaffer61 advises on his return as he is the lead on your topic and I am offering input in the interim to help move things along for you.
Please Run the PCPitstop.com OverDrive Full Tests
You must use your Internet Explorer for this procedure. (doesn't work so well in Firefox or others). If your machine is running Vista or Windows 7, you must Select IE to Run as Administrator. After completing PCPitstop OverDrive you can close your IE browser and re-open it Normally so that you are no longer running as administrator.
Go to: http://www.pcpitstop...pit/default.asp
Click on "Free Computer Check-up" listed below PC Pitstop OverDrive
In the User Login - Click on "Sign up FREE!"
You'll need to submit a valid email address and create your own password, then click - Create Account(button)
Now enter your email address and password to Log in, Select - Scan this system Now!(button)
You will then be asked to download an ActiveX component and allow it to install.
It is safe and does not compromise your privacy.
Follow the on-screen prompts to install the ActiveX and to allow the Full Tests to be run on your machine.
The Full Tests take about 2 1/2 - 3 minutes on most machines.
When complete, a Results - Summary - Recommended Fixes will be displayed.
Please post the URL internet address, from your Results, back here into this Topic Thread so that we can review the configuration and present performance levels of your machine.
Note: During the graphics 2D and graphics 3D testing, your screen will display some rapidly moving objects.
If you are sensitive to visual flashing, it may cause dizziness. Therefore, look away from the screen during that portion of the testing.
After reviewing the results we will be more informed and may be able to provide better recommendations for you to work towards improving your machine's performance.
While PCPitstop does offer a variety of Paid Products, the PCPitstop OverDrive testing is FREE. Please ignore the references to Paid Products. We prefer to provide manual solution instructions that you can apply directly to your machine.
Thanks to rshaffer61 for the PCPitstop instructions

Your installed memory below shows you have more then enough total and free memory to run anything.
8.00 Gb Total Physical Memory | 5.24 Gb Available Physical Memory | 65.47% Memory free
Free space is also very good and not the issue that I can see.
Drive C: | 917.54 Gb Total Space | 810.86 Gb Free Space | 88.37% Space Free | Partition Type: NTFS

I did see you have both MSE and CA installed for AV's. Personally I would uninstall CA and keep MSE.
Phill may have some thought on this also so please wait till he chimes in to make sure what he says.
For now I'll deal with the drivers that need to be updated.
Download DriverMax and have it scan your system. It will open their website with all the out of date drivers you can update. With the free version you can update only 2 drivers per day so if you have a lot of them it will take a few days to get everything updated. I have been using it for about 4 months now and like it better then any other utility out there for keeping my drivers up to date.
