I am having problems again. I disabled and deleted all the startups that I thought I didn't need. Still, it takes 3 minutes for the computer to go from booting the desktop to where it has everything in the background running and is usable. I have started to use the performance meter and have noticed that it idles around 80-90% of memory usage. But, in this picture, it's at 99% and that is three minutes after the desktop appears.
Here are my startup programs:
Autorun entries from Registry:
AccelerometerSysTrayApplet = C:\Windows\system32\AccelerometerSt.exe
SynTPEnh = C:\Program Files\Synaptics\SynTP\SynTPEnh.exe
ATIModeChange = Ati2mdxx.exe
Cpqset = C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\Default Settings\cpqset.exe
PDF Complete = "C:\Program Files\PDF Complete\pdfsty.exe"
Microsoft Default Manager = "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Search Enhancement Pack\Default Manager\DefMgr.exe" -resume
McAfeeUpdaterUI = "C:\Program Files\McAfee\Common Framework\udaterui.exe" /StartedFromRunKey
ShStatEXE = "C:\Program Files\McAfee\VirusScan Enterprise\SHSTAT.EXE" /STANDALONE
StartCCC = "C:\Program Files\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Core-Static\CLIStart.exe" MSRun
GrooveMonitor = "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\GrooveMonitor.exe"
QlbCtrl.exe = C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP Quick Launch Buttons\QlbCtrl.exe /Start
SoundMAXPnP = C:\Program Files\Analog Devices\Core\smax4pnp.exe
QuickTime Task = "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QTTask.exe" -atboottime
SunJavaUpdateSched = "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Java\Java Update\jusched.exe"
acevents = "C:\Program Files\ActivIdentity\ActivClient\acevents.exe"
accrdsub = "C:\Program Files\ActivIdentity\ActivClient\accrdsub.exe"
PTHOSTTR = C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP ProtectTools Security Manager\PTHOSTTR.EXE /Start
CognizanceTS = rundll32.exe C:\PROGRA~1\HEWLET~1\IAM\Bin\ASTSVCC.dll,RegisterModule
iTunesHelper = "C:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunesHelper.exe"
Can anyone tell me if any of these are unnecessary or troublesome? I keep hitting that redline on the memory meter and the fan is really loud at first.
