And go through your 'startup' menu path and move or delete any programs that are not really needed. They all load to the memory, then just sit idle until called up. They are still available whenever called on, as needed.
Check the Task Manager stats as to 'processes'.. should be no more than 45~47 processes in operation, in a basic mode. You can go to Administrative Tools/Services and set the priorities for programming to launch on a 'service' basis or' as-needed' launch. Trim down the load of "loafers" on the OS bus, and see greater speed! Your SysTray box also tells a tale. More than six active icons (plus the clock and speaker) indicate a top-heavy OS load.
