If your system is slow, you may have too many applications loading at startup when Windows boots. Some of these programs are not needed and disabling them can save resources and improve performance as they are available elsewhere - Start > Programs or an icon on the desktop. For more information about this and other possible reasons for poor performance, read Slow Computer/Browser? Check here first; it may not be malware.

If you are unsure what any of the program entries are or if they are safe to disable, then do a search on Google or use the Startup Programs Database.

You can download and use Process Explorer or System Explorer to investigate all running processes and gather additional information to identify and resolve problems. These tools will show the process CPU usage, a description and its path location. If you right-click on the file in question and select properties, you will see more details about the file.
