Click the "Startup" tab. In this tab you will get a list of programs that will launch when Windows starts up. The more programs that start up, the slower your machine will be. You can speed up your computer boot process by disabling unnecessary programs. To disable a program, uncheck the box next to the program you wish to not startup. Some examples of unnecessary programs are Itunes, Google Talk, Skype, software updater programs or any other programs that you don't wish to be started when Windows opens.
