Question about Averatec 5500 Notebook
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
