Re: Still... Slow in Booting and reading startup programs
Try scanning first with your antivirus if your pc has a virus which slows down your computer. Then after checking that your computer is clean from viruses, run a checkdisk (To do this: Start->Run->chkdsk->enter) After checking your disk, try defragmenting. (To defrag: Start->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->Disk Defragmenter) If your computer is still UNUSUALLY slow, try stopping some UNNEEDED services or uninstalling programs from the control panel. If none work, try upgrading your computer. :-)

like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in
Task-Manager (CTRL-ALT-DELETE). High CPU levels causes hang ups like
disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type
MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to
load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources
while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load,
but when only you initiate.
any extras like those pushy toolbars, and add-ons.
Next time you can boot up press F8 repeatedly until you get to the Safe Mode text screen. One of the options there is to boot up and create a Boot Log. Do this. It will take even longer to boot but at the end you will have a file that shows everything the PC was doing during the boot. There are probably lots of things that are initializing that you don't really need.
You can disable startup items by running msconfig from your Run box and clicking the Startup tab.
You can try the following steps. One cleaning the startup file and running a disk cleanup.The programs running in the background at the time windows starts can slow the system down.
1. click on start >Click run
2. Type msconfig
3. You would get the system properties box
4. click on the tab that says startup
5. Click on the tab that says disable all
click apply and restart your computer.
Once the system is back up.
Click on start>all programs>accessories>system tools>disk clean up
Note: it may take some time to clean the system. Do back up important documents if any. Though you would not loose any important information form the computer.

Most likely there is some programs starting on windows startup that run and take up memory and resources. One way to check out what is starting when windows loads up is to use the msconfig utility. Go to Start button -> Run -> in box type "msconfig" -> click OK button. This will open a new window. Click the Startup tab on top. You will see a list of boxes, some of them checked. The ones checked are the programs that are starting automatically when Windows loads up. Be careful you know which you want to "uncheck", because some are necessary. If you are not sure, don't touch it, or Google it. Any Adobe Reader, Microsoft Office, or java update ones are not required. If you are not sure, Google a program called HijackThis, download it, and run it. Copy and paste the output here, and I will tell you what to disable.
plz go to msconfig and disable all item except the antiviruse in the startup tab, then go to my computer propeties ,click on advance then click on performance then select adjust for best performance(visual tab) then go to advance tab and change the page file to 1024 for both(min and max) then do a full scale system scan for viruse Post your findings
