  1. #11


    so anyway about your 7 minute long startup time..



    Need SSD from amazon (samsung Evo) - $100

    Amazon.com: Samsung 850 EVO 250GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-75E250B/AM): Computers & Accessories

    (dang.. why is the 850 cheaper than the 840????!!)


    Need to clean pc..

    then need to Tweak settings - you'll have to browse around here for those.. (disable services, tweak page file, turn of system restore, disable startup programs, turn of Aero, etc..)

    Last 2 pictures are more practical. As don't just go disabling services and system restore not going to speed up PC by disabling it that much.
    As system restore just going save you disk space, but then if issue arises from install or update can not go back to last good point.
    Seen tweak articles before of people telling you what you can disable in services to gain memory, not a good practice usually not way to go about it.

    Personally, I don't mess with services, getting rid of startup entries and monitoring them is a good place to start.

    Yep first place to start, only services you should ever think of disabling or setting to manual is third party software you have installed or if you are diagnosing an issue or doing a clean boot, then of course. If thread starter supplies info on this, then we can go from there to help, plus installed software.

    **** End of log ****

    Thanks everyone for the screenshots....I would never delete or disable anything that i didn't know what it was.
    actually got to thinking and when the Start page opened I took some stuff off I never used. Talk about speed suckers! I am now able to start and reboot in under 3 miutes. WooHoo!

    I see a lot of games I will never play. Will I start up sooner if I remove them? Also I doubt all these items are even in my add/remove programs . Any help on what to disable or remove please let me know.
    Thanks so much,,,,,,You all ROCK!!!!!!

    You will notice the speed from using a SSD.. I linked you to a really good one already from amazon.. in previous post.. there are other SSd's but Samsung will give you really good reliability.. with speed.

    for the amount as little as US $100 you will never regret buying that SSD... Thats cheaper than what I paid 1 year ago and I have the previous model.. (840 Evo)

    I have no idea what a SSD does. Could you please explain it to me. How does it make the computer run faster?

    What about all the games???? where would I go to delete the ones i would never play???

    Thanks so much.... Eileen

    Looking at the list. Yes, you do have some bloatware installed. If it were my PC. This is what I would do.
    1. Uninstall those in red.
    2. Update those in Cyan
    3. Those in green are either Trial software or out of date software. Even though Cyberlink softwares are good but depend on how you use your PC, you need to ask yourself if you really need them.

    Even a new bright and shiny (usually black) SSD is not going to fix a ton of bloatware services loading at boot. Boot of 7 minutes is outrageous even for HDD.

    Had to make this comment after a few others that were made.
