OK good job but I see lots of entries we can get rid of. Way to much auto starting for sure. I did notice you have AVG, Windows Defender and Vprot all installed and running. Running two or three AV's is a problem as they will slow everything down and can cause false positive reports. I would suggest if you are not attached to either to uninstall them both and get something like Avast which is a smaller footprint but works very well. Free for the home user and you only need to register it once a year to get all the updates everyday. Mine updates twice a day just like clock work. Now on to the next step in helping you.
, click on "Logon"
tab, and UN-check
+ "Adobe Reader Speed Launcher"
+ "Corel File Shell Monitor"
+ "QuickTime Task"
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
defraggedPlease do not run any other Auslogics programs other then this one as they may cause unwanted results.
