Hi Ho, My system is currently showing 35-37 programs (or Processes as the computer likes to call them) running at Start-Up. I have checked in Config. and I see all kinds of items listed. It also tells me system resources and being stretched to the limit and as a result, my system seems to have happily settled into a Run Slow Mode. I am aware that some websites are slow but I somehow think my system should be working a bit faster. Can anyone give me some good suggestions (as well as where to get them) to resolve this problem. I am fairly new to computers so I am not sure what system info I should provide to help anyone decide which way I should go. But... this system needs to pull out into the passing lane and step on it for a while.

Hi Guest-
I would uncheck the items not needed in your start-up. I am assuming you are running XP (or NT, 2000) in which case, for preformance options, I would visit here http://www.blackviper.com just make sure that you follow the instructions he gives..
Someone once told me that by unchecking the items in your startup that it was possible to damage the memory manager... that is not true.. so unless you had just rather use a startup manager program I would simply uncheck the ones that do not give you an option in the program itself. (most programs should have an option to leave icon in the tray)

I like WinPatrol for this but that is only one of its functions.

I rcommend installing IE-SPYAD and SpywareBlaster and keeping them up to date weekly.
