When I got this laptop is opened and started fast. I turned it on and logged in and it was done. Now, it gets to the login page fast but it takes a couple of minutes for it to proceed to my desktop and completely start up. I did add some software but have since removed it. Can you tell me how to make it startup fast again?

I need to know what is running on you computer when it starts up can you please
  • Download HiJack This if you don't already have it.
  • Unzip it to some place like C:\Programs files\Hijack This
  • Then dobble click on it.
  • In the window that comes up press "Open Misc Tools Selection"
  • Then press "Generate StartUpList log"
  • Post the log here.
There are also some thing you can do to make your computer fast in Easy XP Tweaks. Plese do not do tweak #7 because I am going to do that with you after looking at that log.
