I use Windows 7.  Recently, my computer started to take nearly 2 minutes to boot up. After doing a defrag and cleanup, and running CCleaner, I uninstalled AVG as that took up most of my CPU at startup, and replaced it with Microsoft Security Essentials, but my computer is still quite slow. Glary Utilities Startup Manager stated 119 programs started on Windows startup or a user logs in, and that it took 60 seconds to boot up.  I have disabled most of the startup programs, but I don't know if I need all the 62 Scheduled Tasks that are listed in the Startup Manager. Could you please tell me which ones, if any, I could disable. They are:

I'm assuming that the 45 Windows Services that also start at startup are necessary?  Any advice will be most gratefully accepted. :)

Just something I noticed.  I hope you haven't really installed Windows Security Essentials because it looks like such a product exists and it is not the same as Microsoft Security Essentials.  I certainly will not trust a product that intentionally chooses a name so similar to the genuine product and be so bold-faced as to steal the logo too!

Sorry, Agouti - my mistake.  It was Microsoft Security Essentials I installed and not Windows Security Essentials. I wonder if there is any way I can edit my original post to correct this.  :scratchhead:

It shouldn't be necessary to edit your post since anyone reading this thread will see the subsequent posts.  But yes, there is a limited time (I'm not sure how long) in which you can edit your post.  The "Edit" button is almost invisible but if you look closely near the bottom right of the post you'll see it...

Thanks for that, Agouti.  I have edited it.
