Hi all,

I have a HP Pavilion entertainment PC running windows 7

When I first turn it on it takes for ever to be able to do anything,

but once it has run for about 5 minutes all is great.

I figure there is to many things wanting to load and run at start up but can't remember how to check this.

And then what should be actually running

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks in advance
