I've looked around on this forum and a Google search, but can't find anything specific to my issue.
I've been noticing that my laptop has started taking longer and longer to boot up and become what I'd call "responsive" (Windows fully loaded, all start up programs up and running). So I installed Autoruns to look at all of the start up programs I've got going on.
One that I'm wondering about is Internet Explorer. From what I've read around the Internet, anything that comes up File Not Found should be left alone in the event that it's being used by something or could be being held in place in the future for something. But, I guess I'm curious as to why IE would show up as File Not Found and I'm wondering if that's slowing anything down because Windows is trying to find a core application like that and it's holding things up until it finds it or gives up. Please see the attached screen shot for reference. It also shows IE in two different locations in the registry and I wasn't sure if that's normal either.
Any help anyone can provide would be great.
