My laptop is extreme slow at start up. I was told to turn off programs at msconfig. How do I know what to turn off? Need some advice. Thanks.

Also, the pc "freezes". What I mean is sometimes when going from site to site, or from program to program, the laptop will show that the program is "not responding" then it will be released and the program will start operating normal. When this happens, the hard drive light is continously on until the program or site is unfrozen. Any ideas why this occurs? Not enough memory, maybe?

I would see about adding more memory. 512Megs is barely enough.

I would recommend the following:
1. Defragment your hard drive for dealing with internet explorer freezing.
2. download and install Soluto. It's a new free program that can help you decide what to remove from your startup

I would not suggest...installing an unacclaimed, unproven beta program...as a technique for doing anything useful on a system.

I also tend to look at endorsements by the likes of PC World as nothing but "paid-for advertising".
