Thanks for posting your question. I would try tweaking the OS using this free guide, http://www.blackviper.com/
This gives you a step by step of what processes need to be running on start up. Hope this helps you.

Just be careful using Blackviper's guide. You can actually mess your system up even more if not careful.
Don't change a bunch of things at the same time in case you realize something is not working that is suppose to work, then it will be easier to backtrack.

If you use Black viper, it has step by step, pretty hard to mess up using it. Even a new user can read and click. If you have a problem using it , contact me.

First we should find out what the issue is before we start offering up solutions.

My wife's PC was slow as hell till I put a 7200 RPM drive in it, and now it is blazing fast.

If the asker will not respond, we should consider this thread closed, Without feedback, you can not offer anymore advice.
