Wow, I agree. That is minimum from some I've seen. Mine is sixty which I thought was fairly low.

I would also consider changing AVG to Avast 6 or MS Security Essentials. AVG bloated up a few years back and never slimmed down so is not recommended by anyone here. Removing it has solved other's problems.

You don't have enough RAM to run RocketDock which is an animated version of the stable Win7 task bar. Save it for when you get enough RAM.

I would uncheck everything in msconfig>Startup except your AV and gadgets. All others are freeloaders on your RAM, CPU and startup time - and can spy on you. You will have no issues if you're not using special graphics or sound settings in those managers. We can help you sort any issues you are confused about, like a useless built-in wireless crapware program which is inferior to Win7 built-in wireless manager.

After several restarts check back in msconfig to see if anything has written itself back into Startup, and if so turn it off in its program Preferences, or uninstall it. Then from the msconfig>Services tab "Hide all MS Services" and see what is running that you didn't start. Uncheck everything and check back to see if anything writes itself back in to turn it off in its Preferences or Uninstall.

These are things you can do in lieu of more RAM for now and will appreciably improve performance. However I do this even on high end installs as it gives perfect performance in hundreds of installs to date.

+1 for Winpatrol (which can be removed later or just use the portable version)- post good screenshots for both Startup Programs (advanced mode) and Services, tabs.

+1 for replacing AVG with Avast.

+1 for Greg's suggestions, particularly uninstalling Rocketdock. For a decent alternative that does not run anything in the background see my post here, and if you have any questions or need help post there?

+1 for following Black Viper's guide- be sure to read the advice's thoroughly and be certain any 'Tweaked' changes will not render any features you require as inoperative.

+1 get some more ram.
