Windows 7: I want to speed up my startup

Thanks for the tip karlsnooks. I do not use CCleaner though. I have nothing personal against it. I just have other ways of doing everything that is does and therefor do not see a need for it.

No. Suggest you investigate CCleaner.

What I mean is I have a little program called TFC for clearing out temporary files. The best thing about it is that it doesn't need to be installed. I carry it on a usb drive and anytime I'm working on a computer I run it once when I'm done. A lot of the other stuff it does, like disabling startup programs and deleting restore points, can be done manually, and I have no interest in any type of registry cleaner.

You might be interested in this "trick"
Open up your C drive , navigate to the root (top-lievel folder) in Windows Explorer.
In that top long bar, type in %temp%
Now select all, right-click and choose delete.

Wow, never seen that before. I did that, and CCleaner does not clear out all of those files.

OK I just took a shot in the dark and tried something. Apparently it worked! I reviewed a few replies and apparently at some point in time I had tried those as well, which did nothing for me.

As I mentioned, I have Oracle 11g on my computer and figured this was the culprit, considering when I go to my Process Manager and sort everything by RAM, this is always on top without fail.

Basically, and I'm going to assume that will work across the board, look for anything that is starting up that is hogging the memory (but make sure it's not required for Windows to function). For me, it was Oracle 11g, for you, it could be who knows. Find out what their services are (only the ones that have the startup type listed as Automatic), and change the Startup type from Automatic, to Automatic (Delayed Start).

Josh,

I do not recommend that approach,but I know that you are far wiser and more experienced than I.

Realizing that, I ask that you make a restore point aforehand.

Incidentally, If you would like to know more about what ram is being used where and what files are involved, then be sure to ckedk out the files tab of RAMMAP.
