Start Up Very Slow

  terrym 13:50 24 Jul 2009

PC Start Up is very very slow to open, I have Norton AV installed & suspected it was scanning on boot up each time it opens, disabled it but its still the same.
Is there any good diagnostic software that I can run to flag up the problem issue?
Thanks In Advance.

Run msconfig, look under the Startup tab and see how many programs/processes you have running at startup.

Disable all those you don't need

Used msconfig & unticked all items not needed & its made a difference. Sea Urchin mentioned Autoruns, can you explain this please.
Many Thanks

When was the last time you run a good spyware program like adaware or spybot search and destroy
