Well, after updating some drivers via Driveragent.com, my score went up a lot, BUT I still have a high CPU usage. How can I bring that down?
I am TRYING to stop the first 4 programs when I bring up Windows, but they still run.
I tried MSConfig, Startup Optimizer, Speed up my PC, Registry Booster, CCleaner, Ad-Aware and Spybot.

These 4 programs keep on coming up with the log-on.

Anyhow, here are my results:

Hi ritter197,

I use the freeware version of WinPatrol. It has many other functiona as well.

another way to turn off alot of services you dont need is to use "services.msc"{type that in the run box). The less un needed windows processes you have going the less ram and cpu usage you will have at start up and at an idle state.
