Everything looks in order, what I would look into is those startup services.

Obviously, the more you have, the slower your PC will run when booting up.

I'd delete the one's I wouldn't use (which is most of them) starting with the MS Office service, that isn't needed because whenever you use office it starts automatically anyway so save youself the loading time.

MSConfig is great because it has an easy interface and is very easy to use. The bad thing with MSConfig is caused by the way it applies the changes you make via the MSConfig utility.

In order for the changes to be permanent, you have to apply them everytime your PC boots up... adding yet another application to the start/boot process.... Figures.

If you want to permanently remove some of those startup items you can do it via the registry.

If you want more info you can check out the thread on editing the registry.
