I have a new Asus Laptop. Everything is working fine, except that it takes forever to start up Windows and finally get on to the start up page for the browser. Are there some start up apps that can be disabled in order for this laptop to start up quicker. Can I disable the start up for certain programs in file explore? Please help as I am very unhappy at the moment with this laptop. Thanks for any advice you can give me.

Post an Autoruns log for us, see here
1: Extract the Autoruns Zip file contents to a folder.
2: Double-click the "Autoruns.exe".
3: Click on the "Hide Signed Microsoft and Windows Entries” option.
4: Go to File then to Export As or Save in some versions.
5: Save AutoRuns.txt file to known location like your Desktop > when you click on File > Save you will then get the option to Save as type, click the drop down tab, change it to Text and then click the Save button.
6: Attach to your next reply.

Hi, thanks so much for getting back to me so quickly. I think I have done what you asked me to do, but how do I attach this file in this reply. It tells me that I am not permitted to upload this kind of file. What should I now do?

Did you change the file to text before you saved it.

I am so sorry, but I just cannot do this. I have tried everything. I don't know what I am doing wrong, but it just doesn't work for me. I want you to know how much I appreciate you trying to help me with this. I guess it is very easy for you to do as you know what you are doing. I am disappointed, but I understand that you have done your best to help me. So sorry, I am just not a techie I guess.

Lets try a different approach, it will not be as comprehensive as Autoruns though;
Download then run Speccy (free) and post the resultant url for us, details here, this will provide us with information about your computer hardware + any software that you have installed that may explain the present issue/s.
To publish a Speccy profile to the Web:
- In Speccy, click File, and then click Publish Snapshot.
- In the Publish Snapshot dialog box, click Yes to enable Speccy to proceed.
- Speccy publishes the profile and displays a second Publish Snapshot. You can open the URL in your default browser, copy it to the clipboard, or close the dialog box.

I tried following the instructions, but I ended up copying and pasting the report from speccy. Is this okay or did I mess up again. I did copy it to the clipboard and saw it by hitting the windows key and V. Will you be able to go to the web site above?
