try it and see - if you can't hear anything or have trouble with your games after disabling, then it's very simple to re-enable.

That may be malware, run a scan of Malwarebytes

Well Disabling the CCC and HD audio Manager did speed up my system a lot. I will do i'll let it run while I am at work. I'll try and get on at work guy.

Thanks

Ritual,
As an experiment, uncheck everything except for the one program from Microsoft.

If now the performance is better, try following:

Uninstall Avast,
Install Microsoft Security Essentials which is free, small-footprint, non-interfering, updated very regularly.

This will give you excellent AV protection with excellent performance ant zero cost.

MSE - Microsoft Security Essentials

I also 100% agree with the recommendation to run MalwareBytes. Run first the quick scan, then run the full scan.

Malwarebytes

Let us know the results.

Its nice to see MS releasing updates that improve boot speed.....while my system boots up pretty quick, its got somewhat old specs.

However, my school computers take a hell of a long time to boot up (close to a minute), but run great when I use them regularly (web browsing, word processing, etc.). And they're decent computers....4G RAM, quad-core processors, HP workstations. This I don't get at all, maybe its just the way their configured?

So you think it could just be something as simple as my anti-virus? Currently I am using Avast Free.

Install CCleaner and look on it's Tools>Startup tab for what it makes of that MS unknown entry. I'd turn it off after setting a Restore point anyway.

Then run CCleaner "Run Cleaner" and on Registry tab "Check for Issues," then Fix Issues after backing them up to Documents. CCleaner - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

The new version of free Puran Defragger gives a great boot-time Disk defrag, and will optimize your HD for faster reads if you tick the optimize choice on Operations tab. http://download.cnet.com/Puran-Defra...-75115626.html

The next round is to check the Services tab in msconfig, hide all MS Services, then see what is running without your knowledge. These may need to be uninstalled if they can't be turned off in their program Preferences.

If you're not using special settings or overclocking you don't even need the Catalyst Control bloatware, only it's driver. I would uninstall.
