Lately, I have much slower than previous, start up and Stopping.I have run every Scan, I can think of,but prob persists.Actual running is OK. Running Processes are 41 and CPU very low.I think Start up Prog are the Culprit here.
I am not very PC litterate, and don't recognize a lot of the NWIZ etc what they are. Wondering if I posted a screen shot of Start up Progs, could a techie tell me which are safe to disable at startup. Thanks in advance. :thumbsup:
Running XP SP2.

You can look up questionable startup items...using Google and links like the following:

CastleCops® - StartupList - http://www.castlecops.com/StartupList.html

Startup Programs Database - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/

Startups - Contents - http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_content.php

You can also use a program such as AutoRuns for Windows v8.73 - http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysintern...s/AutoRuns.mspx
to disable/remove individual startup items on your system. Please read instructions for using before proceeding.
