Thanks again, Karl. Edits made. The tutorial hadn't been updated since Skydrive came out. Let me know if anything else gets stale or needs correcting. This is an process with many variables always in flux.

ok.. i didn't think i was THAT stupid.. but i can't even understand fully the first step... 1. Uncheck everything in msconfig>Startup except AV, Gadgets/Stickies/Skydrive if you use them and Touchpads which require driver software running to use certain features like scrolling pad. Illustrated steps here: Startup Programs - Change. The rest are freeloaders that slow startup, hog CPU/RAM, and can spy on you. Programs can wait to start until you run them.

where is the msconfig???????????? i know about the uninstall programs and program files and i know how to access my drivers and that stuff but i am new to windows 7 and the search in the start menu didn't show anything up for msconfig.. so how do i access it? your tutorial might need to start at the beginning for us noobs i guess that don't understand all the jargon or make a youtube vid recording the buttons and such you click or where you type things in at to find these....???

If you select Properties from the right click menu, Compatibility tab and check Run as Administrator it will run that way without the right click in the start menu. I'm lazy.

After you have pinned the item to the start menu, right click on it. A menu will open at the bottom of it is "Properties". Click Properties, a window will open with several tabs, here it the one for cmd. Click the tab and you'll see where it says "Run as Admin".

msconfig, regedit will be different.

A great example how the bloatware causes issues there.
