slow boot time. have followed seavixens tute on event viewer...

hi guys,

some of you had assisted me a week or so ago re clean install etc. there was an issue of slow boot times. that seemed to fix itself but unfortunately it is back. i have read seavixen's tutorial on event viewer and setup my custom view accordingly. but how do i understand which programs to not run at boot? i was advised by greg i think to not run any. is this so? below are some screen shots of slow boot and my startup. for some reason i think i should be running those ticked at the startup. are these boot time images helpful? so tired of this pc... is it just no good???

oh, there is a file there, cisco VPN client, that my university setup. we don't use that anymore and i have deleted the application but it appears here in the custom event viewer and when i set up the boot times and degradation view it saved in that file. is it a problem?

cheers,
Ken

Try removing Ad Aware. Then, disable everything in msconfig except for Microsoft Security Essentials.

kenzoic,
WIN | type MSCONFIG | ENTER | STARTUP tab |
Uncheck ALL except for:
Script:
MSC    Microsoft Corporation    "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\msseces.exe" -hide -runkey 

REBOOT!

You have just told Win 7 to not run unchecked programs at start up time.

You have not disabled the programs. They will be run when needed.

WIN = key with the Microsoft logo on top

REMOVAL OF P2P PROGRAMS

There are signs of one or more P2P (Peer to Peer) File Sharing Programs on your computer.

As long as you are using any form of P2P networking to download files, you can anticipate malware infestations.

References citing the risk of using P2P programs:

Malware: Help prevent the Infection
Perils of P2P File Sharing
How to Prevent the Online Invasion of Spyware and Adware
The Hidden Security Risks of P2P Traffic


I strongly recommend that you uninstall:
µTorrent
BitTorrent
Vuze

While working to fix your system, removal of peer-2-peer programs is a necessity.

After you have carried out the uninstall, task scheduler, and startup recommendations, then
post a fresh set of the three files from CCleaner.
