Windows 7: How do I fix my Windows Firewall?

So I downloaded chrome from your link...I don't know if its chrome or what but my system is running so slow now it's unreal. If I click on a desktop icon it literally takes about 2-3 min before I even see it load on my screen. I ran my ccleaner to see if that would help and it didn't as well as when I ran SAS...I don't know what's wrong with it now but it's super slow.

That is very odd, chrome should have nothing to do with your pc speed. What do you have running at startup?

Ya it's extremely slow now. How do I find out or where do I go to see what's running on startup?

Do you have ccleaner installed? If so, open it, click tools then startup. Under the windows tab it lists everything that starts up with your pc. You can even click save to file in the bottom right and upload the log here.

If you do not have ccleaner installed,

use msconfig.

Click type "msconfig" Choose it in the results. Under the startup tab, take a screenshot of what is in there and upload it here. Hint: If it is over 10 items, that is way to many.

Agreed to many things running in the background will slow the pc down. I use CCleaner every two weeks it's a very good program. Also if I might add might not be a bad idea to defrag your system too a fragmented system will cause your hard drive to work harder to open programs and cause some lag in your system as well. But I would follow whatever Andrew say's

andrew129260 where did all the other posts go? I feel like I'm going crazy here...your last post was telling me to go to my ccleaner startup and save it to load here for you...and you also mentioned msconfig...I did both ways and haven't heard from you and now I don't see a lot of our posts. What is going on here?

Post the log of your startup with ccleaner, or use snipping tool or screenshot for msconfig please and we can take a look

Here's my logs...I actually had a hard time uninstalling Chrome...don't know why but I did. I had to go into my C:\ drive and program files to delete all of Chrome from there. UGH

I will say that even after uninstalling and getting rid of it all...it's still slow to load

This thread is on page 11.....still not sure what you are talking about. All your posts and mine are still there...

And you did not uninstall chrome properly. Did you not use control panel uninstall a program to remove it like you should remove every program? Deleting all the files under c\program files does not uninstall it. I suggest reinstalling chrome, then if you do not care for it, restart the pc and then go under control panel- uninstall a program to make sure you properly uninstall it this time.

You have itunes installed, that does not surprise me. Remove itunes from startup-preferably uninstall it. Windows media player does a much better job and is not a resource hog.

Dropbox is unnecessary to have installed. Even more unnecessary to have it startup with your pc. Simply going to the website and signing in allows you to do everything the program does.

Superantispyware free is not necessary upon bootup. Open it, then go into system tools-preferences-and uncheck the first box where it says start superantispyware with windows. The free version is not necessary to start with windows as it does not have active protection.

Do you have the paid pro version of malwarebytes?

I did that...reinstalled it and uninstalled it from CP but there were still items in the C:\ Program Files...so I just deleted them...I think it was just the folders with it all?

Removed these and everything else in there that was not necessary.
