Go to the "START" button. type msconfig then press return. It should open a grey page. If it does n't you may need to download msconfig from the web, there are plenty of copies around. I think you copy it into Windows/system32.

When you get it started click the option for selective startup.

This allows you to go through the start up section and see what is being run when you start. Just uncheck a few ata a time if you don't know what you are doing. I would sugest that you begin by leaving anything that is in the windows directory or is shown as from Microsoft.

You just reboot. (Typical Windoze) . You will probably find that you have dozens of things running that you don't need or know what they are. Lots of thing put their drivers in startup just to make them start quicker but it can be a real burden when it would only take a few seconds longer for them to start up.

My PC would typically have 2 things in startup . Usually a screen and one other.

Next go through the service tag in MSCONFIG and look what is running (sort by click on status) bet you have a whole lot of **** like UPS and UTP(win) time servers and all that junk, all taking memory and time. You can google each entry thats running to see what they are. I think you should be able to get down to about 10 services running.

Download AVG ani virus and run it if you haven't got a virus check on it already

Finally get a registry cleaner such as and run it to clean up the reigstry Free Registry Repair from

Why is my laptop window 7 running very slow?

Uncheck tools in start up menu that you don't absolutely need on startup. Select selective start up and deselect startup items. Click apply, a window will pop up that says windows startup has been changed. Select do not show this box again and then OK. Delete browsing history and cookies. Go to C:\ windows temp files and select all, then hit the delete key. Movies and pics and music take up a lot of disk space and can slow down you unit. Manage your add ons in the settings menu. Disable add ons, they slow down your unit. Good luck I hope this solves your problem. Please post a solved comment on fixya, so I receive credit for the solve.

Hi i have a wd essential 2tb almost full rigth now and from yestreday everytime i go in the drive after 2 or 3 seconds pops a window saying that windows explore stop working and all windows are closing...

Does this problem occur on other computers? 2tb is a lot of data. Do you have indexing enabled on the drive? That could be slowing things down.

1. Open Windows Explorer from Accessories.
2. Right click on the drive (or drive letter) that you want to turn off the indexing.
3. Select Properties on the contextual menu.
4. Unselect (untick) the Index this drive for faster searching option.
5. Click Apply or OK button.

Keeps wanting to load fax & photo gallery when I log in

Things like to plant themselves in your start-up in windows. It is getting more obscene with software as the years go on.  Both XP and Vista have similar fixes for slow start-ups.  (In XP) Go to Start-->Run a box will pop up to type in a command, *In Vista, you can type "run" in the search box at the start menu* Type "msconfig" and a system configuration utility will pop up.  Click the tab that says "start-up" and un-check the software for your photo gallery and fax software.  *and any other non-needed programs for starting up your computer

Pops up lime wire, curser won't work, extremely slow

Try downloading Avast Free version. I have had great success removing things infected from LimeWire with this software. When you download and get it set up, it will ask if you want to set up a boot scan. Say yes. Let the system re-boot and run. if something pops up it will pop up a window with a siren on it. move everything to the chest. Do not delete anything as it may be a system file that you delete. Lime wire is a haven for viruses. I would suggest getting rid of it.
