    Download CCleaner and launch it

    at the Tools tab click Startup and Save to text file

    let's see what starts with Windows and disable the unnecessary apps

    also another thing virus and malware do that to your system too.

    Yes HKCU:Run LightScribe Control Panel C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\LightScribe\LightScribeControlPanel.exe -hidden

    Yes HKCU:Run msnmsgr "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Messenger\msnmsgr.exe" /background

    Yes HKCU:Run RegistryBooster "C:\Program Files (x86)\Uniblue\RegistryBooster\launcher.exe" delay 20000

    Yes HKLM:Run Easybits Recovery C:\Program Files (x86)\EasyBits For Kids\ezRecover.exe

    Yes HKLM:Run GrooveMonitor "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12\GrooveMonitor.exe"

    Next download System Explorer
