Yes, I did read the tutorial and many others. I am an idiot when it comes to this stuff, I don't even understand what a registry is.

Plain and simple, my laptop runs way to slow considering it's size/age/etc. Windows 7 also takes forever to startup. I downloaded and ran Autoruns, but all I see are a bunch of words that do not tell me what program runs at startup. Especially because there are so many categories (Everything, Logon, Explorer, Codex, etc) Please help me on this.
