Startup Faster in Windows 7
I am sure there's a few you could disable, as you would never really use them richc46, thats just me though, i go through the ones which are quite safe to disable.
Well disable or manual its really the same thing i think, but i just stick to the guide

That is a good guide it was used by many members.

There is no log out. If you are satisfied and do not require anymore help. You click on the icon (upper right, the last one.) You type solved on the screen that will appear.

I suggest that you use Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes for your defense. If you do, Defender turns off automatially, since it is no longer needed. M Security Essentials has replaced its function in addition to being an A/V.

MSE and Malwarebytes are highly recommended in this Forum.

ARR, thankyou richc46, yes just been looking through windows defender now
I see your point.

So i take it Malwarebytes is better to have than windows defender.
I have just done the definition updates and just doing a scan

Actually richc, i have them both on the vista machine, i will look into MSE for this computer.

Hang on a bit, MSE has AV built in, i normally have Avast, which i will probably get in a day or to, rather than waiting for this McAfee 30 free trial to run out.

So is windows defender pritty much ok to have at this time , as far as spyware and unwanted software is concerned, plus i could always get Malwarebytes also

Sorry richc46, i might need glasses, at the moment, can you give a description of the icon, just for future reference.
Better to do it properly than stay logged in all the time

No need to worry, about being logged on. As soon as you hit the X on the upper right of your screen (the normal X that is used to close the screen), you will be logged out, unless you checked the box to stay logged in, when you signed in. It that is the case, the bottom of your screen, very small writing, it gives you the option to sign out. Good Luck

Do i still mark it as solved, if i can find which icon you mean.
It must be there some where........

But just on the performance again, with having 3gb ram, and using the "snap" feature plus other large programs "skype" and "messenger" at the same time, should i have any worries on performance doing this, or is that what having 3gb ram cover's you for...

Disabling startup items is always the first place to start. Personally I havent had to tweak Win7 other than that... it's that fast and that good!

Welcome to the SevenForums!

Its 32 bit, no laptop, unless you bought it yourself use 64 bit.. other then gamings, just to keep costs down xD.

Well, why do you want to consume this low amount off RAM?, 3 GiG is alot for a lappie xD, in comparison too many others and too keep the efficency down I would suggest checking out GOogle. I hope people here come with great answers though xD

Really i suppose if i am not using them turn them off, aero, services, programs, etc
Why have them all turned on, if i don't use them.
They just take up resourses, even though 3gb is a lot and can manage all these running, i just prefer to turn them of.....................

Thanks anyway Cocopara for the input.............

Hi Carl,

Would just like to clarify your question on Logging Off

I assume you are talking about logging off the actual forum

As soon as you close the last page or tab logged into the forum you will be logged out automatically.

When you next navigate to the forum main page you will either have to enter your login details or if you chose the login automatically option when signing up you will be signed in automatically.

There is a log-out link on all pages, (actual location may vary dependent on the skin you are using, (select skin Bottom right of page )

at any time when logging in you can enable or disable the auto login option

Right with you on that, seen the logout link at the very bottom of the page, can you also tell me how to mark the question as "solved"
