Hi folks,could someone assure me that it's ok to untick everything except my antivirus at startup without anything dodgy happening.I'm very nervous about doing so but there is a lot of stuff starting up.Thankyou.

No, it's not OK. For instance, if you have a laptop you don't want to turn off the keypad.

Download one of these to determine which programs are not needed at start up.
