yea good tip ^ ... also disable what you dont need on startup, eg: itunes, msn etc. ... what are the specs of your pc?

spec is ok so you dont really need to disable any effects, unless you want a super quick pc. you do defragment regularly dont you?

You can try a free program called CCLEANER it will scan you computer and clear out all unwanted stuff, it wont harm your computer so dont worry aboat it messing things up it only removes cookies,history that sort of thing and you can manually set it to what you want.
