    First download CCleaner and run it.

    Go into the "Issues" tab and run that too.

    Go to Tools/Start up and delete everything except the firewall and anti -virus.

    Run disk defragmenter

    If your still not happy,go HERE follow the instructions and post an HJT log in the Security and the Web forum.

    Yes.

    You can also do it through msconfig start up if you want,but as you were already in CCleaner,I thought why not use that.
