click the start button, then Run and in the dialog box, type "msconfig" (without the qoute) and press ok
in the System Configuration Utility window, select the startup tab
uncheck the box with the RegCure entry then click apply and ok, then choose 'exit without restart'
download and install this (Absulutely) free utility >>> http://www.ccleaner.com/
first run Cleaner (click the cleaner button / analyze / run cleaner

no need to back-up changes just select fix selected issues

Slow to load applications


Try using CCleaner to remove a lot of unwanted temp data, this may help somewhat - you can download it free at www.ccleaner.com.
Also try using a free tune-up utility or some kind of registry cleaner.

If you are still having problems after trying this please ask and I will assist you further.

It would be heplful if we knew what the Make, model of laptop and the OS you are using. Start by shutting down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, reboot. Do you have a up-to-date Anti Virus? If so Run a Full Scan, delete ALL results. Download Freeware MALWAREBYTES at :http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ In the install UNCHECK the TRIAL PRO version, you want the freeware version. Run a FULL Scan, Delete ALL results, reboot. Download CCLEANER freeware at : http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ This program will clean the junk from your machine. In the TOOLS section, STARTUP section, Disable ALL unnessary programs. Remove ALL toolbars they are killers on broswer speed. Post you info for further assistance.

Too slow


A bit vague. I would guess you have to many running programs. Use these two freeware programs 1, CCLEANER at: http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/, This will clean the junk from your machine. In the TOOLS section, STARTUP, Disable ALL unnessary Startup programs. Remove ALL TOOLBARS they all killers on broswer speed. 2, MALWAREBYTES at :http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ In the install, UNCHECK, the PRO TRIAL version, you want the freeware version. Run A FULL SCAN, DELETE ALL RESULTS, REBOOT. REMEMBER, Every program that "runs at windows start"and runs in background needlessly, slows down your machine, over time they add up. When you install a program look for the "start at windows startup" and UNCHECK. For further assistance respond to this post.

Close ALL unnessary programs. What are you doing when it freezes? Do you have a good malware program? if so run a full scan. Also download CCLEANER freeware at: http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/. This program will remove the junk fromyour machine. In the TOOLS section, STARTUP, disable ALL unnessary startup programs and UNINSTALL ALL TOOBARS , they are killers on broswers. On http://www.filehippo.com/, there are many FREEWARE programs to Tuneup a slow machine. I suggest MALWAREBYTES to remove malware from your machine it's freeware: http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ In the installation UNCHECK the TRIAL PRO version, you want the freeware version. If you need further assistance respond to this post.

The time mentioned may indicate a deeper problem than software, but I would start by doing a clean wipe of system. After backing up of course. This will help eliminate that cause.

How can I make my laptop works faster?


You don't say what OS, assuming XP
I'd try the following:
Run windows disk cleanup and defrag
Run a cleanup program like ccleaner
Run a registry cleaner like regcure or eusing
If that doesn't help add more memory (you should have at least 1GB and preferably 2) or switch to Linux :-)
