Startup programs sometimes do not load

Hello,
I have a problem whit startup programs. When I start Windows 7, sometimes some programs do not load at startup. It doesn’t happen all the time and it is not always the same program that doesn’t load, but it occurs randomly.
Anyone has got a solution for this? Thanks in advance for your help.

McAfee, Dell DataSafe Local Backup, Intel Rapid Storage Technology...

It's not always the same program and it happens from time to time.

Do you notice any issues with your hard drive...like system stuttering, or clicking noises?

Press windows button and "R" simultaneously , you will get the Run window. Write "msconfig" there and hit enter ... the system configuration window will appear . Click on the StartUp tab, you will see the list of auto start programs . Make it sure that the programs you want as start up with windows are present there, and the box in front of it is checked .

Msconfig is OK, all startup programs are checked.

The hard drives seems to work correctly.

May I ask why you want a bunch of freeloaders starting up with Win7, leeching your CPU/RAM, slowing Startup and Shutdown, and spying on you which is what many do? I would go the other direction to get a clean boot by unchecking everything except a decent AV.

MucAfee is not recommended by anyone here except to uninstall it which is how it works best. We solve problems here every week by uninstalling it. I would swap it out for MSE or Avast 6 freeware with the Win7 Firewall.

Then lean down your installation so Win7 is allowed to run in its native instantaneous, featherlight state. Here are other tips to Clean up factory bloatware
