As for what is running on system may slow it down, usually at startup, go to start programs ,run and type MSCONFIG look under first what is starting up.
Then under services will show to the right what is running.
I would not do it this way to shut off running processes or startup programs, checking this way can just give you an idea of what is running and if there is a conflicts with a program running you can use this Msconfig to temporarily disable those starting programs.
You can try either shutting them off in the programs itself,look in options of the program, some may need to run at startup or all the time mattering to the program, e.g., Anti-Virus
Try a free program that can shut off start up programs plus clean web cache and temp files called CCleaner My link
Let the Maleware team first check out the system,try posting more system specs to them,GOOD LUCK

Please read this article which I believe applies also to, fix my computer and optimize/speed up my computer. Windows has it's own very good clean up tools which I run once a week.

Hello. My computer is running relatively slow and was hoping someone could help me figure out the issues. I was thinking maybe someone could assist in shutting down any programs running behind the scenes that arn't necessarily needed and check to see if i have any virusus. Any help is greaty appreciated.
