I just went to the website posted in the above post and googled the website for the program that should be able to tell you what program is causing the delay. It can be downloaded from here GreenVantage LLC

Let me know if that works for you

That app is also a trial and requires registration, the terms of which are somewhat onerous.

Thanks for the heads up. It should work since the site says its a fully functional trial version.

It probably will work but their terms allow selling your info. Not something I would care to do

FWIW, Windows 7 is probably the best operating system Microsoft has come out with when it comes to not needing a lot of 3rd party tweaking. Boot times can usually be increased just by deselecting startup items in msconfig. (On my laptop the only startup items I have selected are my anti-malware and touchpad. Desktop has just the anti-malware selected.) So called optimizers like the various tune up utilities out there, registry cleaners, etc usually do more harm than good, IMHO.

You might want to take a look here and see what you can do to optimize your machine. Many of the suggestions incorporate Windows own tools such as disk defragmenter, disk cleanup, turning off scheduled tasks, etc.

Thank all for help. Sorry for late inform. I couldn't connect to internet these days.
I solved this problem. It's caused by the error of my network driver. I uninstalled it and all is ok now.

Hi marsmimar,
Thank you for your help.
I don't understand much about computer. My second computer is running Windows 7 and it was very slow before. But after I had installed Advanced System Optimizer of Systweak, it worked faster. I was very pleased. I'm not sure what I feel is right because I am really really bad at the computer.

No apologies needed. We all started out being very bad with computers. I'm still very bad!

Tools like Systweak make many of their computer changes by using the Windows 7 tools. Instead of you having to look for disk cleanup or disk defragmenter, etc, Systweak puts them all in one convenient place ... their control board or dashboard so you don't have to waste time looking for what you need. And they make it even easier by usually offering a one click solution. "Click this button and we will make your computer faster." If Systweak makes your computer faster and if it's easier for you to use this, that's great. But may I make a suggestion?

1. Before you use Systweak (or any other similar tool) make a restore point just in case something goes wrong. A restore point might help get your computer working again if something was cleaned out that should not have been cleaned.

2. Even better is to buy an external hard drive and create a System Image. A System Image is like a photo of your entire hard drive exactly as you have it set up. It includes all of your files, music, documents, personal settings - everything on your hard drive. If you get a virus or if Systweak really breaks your computer, a System Image will return your machine to the exact condition it was in on the day you made the Image. Windows 7 has a basic imaging tool or you can use a free imaging tool from Macrium or Paragon. A System Image is much, much better than a restore point.

Yes, I understood. You mean Advanced System Optimizer just used Windows 7's existing tools. I think you are right. Are all optimizer like that?
But I think I will continue using an optimizer util I mastered the computer. Moreover, it also helps me save time and feel more secure. Could you please tell me I should use CCleaner or Advanced System Optimier? I have not try CCleaner but I have heard many good words about it, and it's free.

I think most (maybe all) optimizers use the basic Windows 7 tools. Or maybe they change the tools just a little bit so Microsoft's lawyers stay away. CCleaner and Advanced System Optimizer are slightly different. ASO says it will do more than CCleaner. They both clean junk files, they both have a registry cleaner, they both delete unwanted programs, etc. But ASO has things like Game Optimizer, Driver Updater, Undelete, etc.

I don't like using two different "optimizers" because each one scans your computer and decides what should be done to make your computer "better". If you use ASO first, it will make the changes it thinks are best. If you then use CCleaner (or any other optimizer) it may have a different opinion of what is best. Then CCleaner may change things that ASO did not change. The next time you run ASO it will see the changes made by CCleaner and maybe make even more changes. And then CCleaner may make more changes. And that's what can break a computer.

Me? I'd stay with just one product. But if you want to try CCleaner along with ASO and see if it helps, please make a restore point or system image. When we talk about optimizers, the only way to know for sure how it will affect a computer is to try it. What works for me may not work for you. Or maybe it will. Nobody can say for sure.
