Looks pretty normal. I doubt I would change any of it. You might download and run CCleaner or PC-Decrapifier. You can google for their download sites and more info.

If your comp seems slow or sluggish, Windows 7 Manager by www.yamicsoft.com . Several good utilities with it.

OK, from my point of view, u want to speed up your machine.

Don't use the Acrobat reader, that's memory hog and u have only 1GB of RAM.

Use 10x lighter Foxit reader with some editing features in the free version @ http://www.filehippo.com/download_foxit/

hi nikorr,
if possible,yes i want to speed up my machine,but don't know if using foxit reader instead off adobe reader will make a big difference,maybe it will,i really don't know.BUT I WILL CONDIDER IT to use foxit reader(i will do some google searches about this,i have no experience with foxit reader).also, i don't use pdf readers often,just occasionally.maybe we can go on with the 2 steps you have proposed earlier?

That's the thing, u don't know. Many people can tell u what a hoog it is+it runs another background processes, even when u are not using it. And given the RAM u have, yes it will free resources. Also don't install any tool bars as they run in the background too and are useless. On weak machines like most portables are, disable the start up of those apps.


also, i don't use pdf readers often,just occasionally.maybe we can go on with the 2 steps you have proposed earlier?


OK, write for yourself how long it takes to open PDF file from scratch. Kill it in the services first. Than open it. Than install Foxit and time that. U will see....

Can u run Belarc and post the log info? http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

Everything will be listed and maybe we can speed things up.



hi nikorr,

i will try your suggestion about this: OK, write for yourself how long it takes to open PDF file from scratch. Kill it in the services first. Than open it. Than install Foxit and time that. U will see....

about the belarc suggestion:I do not like to install new programs because I do not know how i remove these programs later fully.including the remaining files and folders of the program.

also,i don't want to be rude,but here in belgium it is already 2.00 am,and i go to sleep within a couple of minutes.
maybe we can go on further tomorrow?
then i will send you a message, when i am back online.

thanks for the help and the tips so far!!!!!!
