U mean msconfig? start>run>msconfig Under services disable anything you don't need and isn't vital for Windows. Under startup tab, disable anything U don't need. Download and install CCleaner or Tune Up utilities (just google them) run cleaner. Also try a scan with Malwarebytes, just in case. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
