Ok, I have a couple of things that I would like to get figured out.
Firstly, how to remove/stop programs at start-up.
I have done a re-format and installed drivers, and other programs, but it takes a while for it to get up to speed, think it needs a couple of turbos and some nos :huh: speed is good.
Anyhow I have downloaded and installed a program called AutoRuns from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx well i was sure surprised, I think every program I have installed on this computer is starting up just after it goes into windows.
Problem, I don't know what all to stop or actually remove from startup, sure would like some help with this one, I think that there is a way to save a copy and post it, but i haven't figured it out yet.

Only a small portion from Autoruns list are real startups. Most of those, you really want to play with safely are located at "Logon" tab.
If you attach your Autoruns log, I'll help you to sort startups out.

Startup is EASY! Download Winpatrol and you can easily click on and off the programs that run in startup.

You download it here -----> Winpatrol

Buy the plus version and Winpatrol (support@winpatrol.com) will guide you through any problem you have.

That should do the trick

To save a copy of your Autoruns log, click on File - Save. You can save it as either a .txt or .arn file; .arn is default and allows someone to open the file through Autoruns for comparison purposes.

Are you worried about malware, or just looking to speed up the start-up?
