There are some obvious processes that you can kill. Many applications have a "quick launch" feature which, when you boot your computer, start of a part of the application so that when you want it, it will launch much faster. Media players and office applications can be killed, for example.
It also helps to have only one or two active screens open at the same time for different applications. You can review the Startup List tabbed at the top of the BC page, which will describe the application, etc., and whether it is necessary, unneeded, or optional. Remember, though, if you are not absolutely sure about something, it is safest to leave it alone. Naturally, if you still have questions about some of the things, you can post them EXACTLY as they appear in the menu, and our Members may be able to give you guidance.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
