    I'll try disabling and uninstalling all the toshiba software that I can, I'm actually on a different system at the moment. I guess I overlooked disabling updaters. I have, however, disabled many start-up programs. Start-up time isn't so much an issue for me. I don't mind waiting a few more seconds at start-up. I mainly need responsiveness while using audio programs and while playing media (along with the usual internet browsing).

    Yes they have the most impact during startup or logon, but they impact your memory and take space out of the pagefile,
    thus inducing more paging. DISABLE whatever you are not using.
