The computer seems to run fine except startup seems to take forever. I don't know what to get rid or keep. Any advice needs to be addressed to a beginner.

start >run >msconfig

it lets you configure your startup programs by looking at selective startup section. choose selective startup. go to startup tab in between services and tools. uncheck any programs you dont want to run during start up like nerocheck, PDVDSERV, etc. just dont uncheck system startup and common startup programs.

msconfig should not be used as a startup manager.
That's not what it was designed for.
msconfig, was designed as a troubleshooting tool.

Try to disable unnecessary programs that run at startup, from inside the program itself, using the Options menu.

To control Startup applications, that can't be disabled from the programs Option menu, use a third-party startup monitor.
Two good ones, are mike Lin's Startup Control Panel, and Startup Inspector.

If you use Spybot, it also has a startup manager.

The 2 tabs at the top of the page, Startup List and File Database, can be used to check the programs you have running at startup, to see if they are necessary programs, or not.
