Computer runs a little slow. Biggest problem is Youtube)and other video sites) - audio runs smoothly while video constantly freezes up. I recall last year posting here and was advised to uncheck a lot of startup programs. I was told then to uncheck most of the startups, as they weren't needed...I don't remember which ones thought. Just looked at Sys Config/Startfup and everything is checked again. Can someone help me?

The computer runs slowly or videos on the web are slow? Please explain the EXACT problem.

Also, do not use msconfig to permanently disable the process. Instead, if it is a service go to START - RUN and type: services.msc (then press enter) and disable the service OR, if it a program, you can download & run a simple app such as Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml) to enable, disable, or otherwise manage startup programs.

Hi maxcalvada Lets see if we can speed your pc up a bit!

Download and run startuplite from Malwarebytes.org
http://www.malwarebytes.org/StartUpLite.exe
Please tell me which programs are starting after running startuplite.

Listproccess
A very small program that simply lists the processes that Task Manager lists, including the full path name so you can see what program they are part of. You can easily copy and paste the list into a text file for before/after comparisons, or to email/forum when asking for computer help. You may be surprised at what is running on your computer! Some processes waste a lot of computer resources and make your computer sluggish.
Download ListProcesses for Windows HERE

http://www.softwarespirit.com/ListProcesses.exe Save the file to the desktop.

Once downloaded to the desktop
Double click the Listproccess Icon
Click run
When the window opens "select" GetList
Scroll to bottom of the window and click on Copy
Reply to this thread and paste the contents of the list so we can see it.


Please download MiniToolBox HERE http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/farbar/MiniToolBox.exe When the box opens click save file, save it to the desktop and run it.

Checkmark the following boxes:

List Installed Programs
List Users, Partitions and Memory size
Click Go and post the result.

Did all you asked.

All that's now checked on startup on Sys Config is Applesyncnotflier.

I've attached the results of the 2 software programs you asked me to download.

Currently, Youtube is running faster, but still has slight "freeze ups."
