Windows 7: this computer is setup to automatically run programs at startup?

this computer is setup to automatically run programs at startup?

Whenever I run the troubleshooter for performance issues it says one problem detected "this computer is setup to automatically run programs at startup"

And I only have 3 programs to run at start up my AV, audio driver, and some intel rapid storage program.

Is this just a default thing or is there a problem?

Your pc is normal. My pc does that too and I only have 3 programs, one of which is my antivirus, and the others are for Windows and AMD.

I would agree 3 is about average, certainly nothing to be concerned about. You may be able to trim a few services if you feel you would like more performance.

You don't need any to startup other than the AV, and it should be lean like Microsoft Security Essentials.
