    Hi, Leo Stone.

    Is the slowness a recent occurrence? Do you have up-to-date antivirus software and anti-malware software on your computer? When was the last time you did a full system scan to ensure the problem isn't due to malware?

    An excellent list of steps to take is available at MalWare Removal What to do if your Computers running slowly.

    Install freeware WinPatrol (However running msconfig from start search will also do)
    Disable start-ups which you dont require.
    This itself should suffice.

    Pls see Make Windows Start, Run, Shutdown Faster ! if you wish to engage in some tweaking.

    I just saw this via @MSWindows: 15 easy tips to make Windows boot up faster. It doesn't require any regedits and is a nice way to clean things up a bit.
