Slow to start up

Hey guys, my new laptop takes ages to restart. Any hints or ideas? What is not needed in the start up menu? What programs are safe to unclick in the start menu?

Thank you

try it with every thing unchecked but your antivirus software. you can always go back and recheck them if needed.

Uncheck everything excepting your AV protection, as member above said and post back results.

Really? Uncheck everything?

What about processes running in the task manager?

Don't touch the processes in task manager unless you like BIG problems. But the startup programs (except AV and those you chose yourself like sidebar) can ALL be unchecked.

If you want a real fast startup and program response, get an SSD. My laptops start in 12 to 16 seconds - all with SSDs.

Your system specs tells us nothing. For all we know, you have a puny antique PC with 512MB of RAM. What's under the hood? A 426 Hemi or a 265 Chevy?
