PC is taking a long time to load Win7 - I think there is a lot of programs set to start on boot.

How do I find them and what can I safely remove?

Thanks

type msconfig into the search box in the start menu. Go over to starup. Untick anything you dont want (I normally untick everything bar ms components, my av & firewall and steam).

I would first check what's installed, and uninstall what's not really required. Maybe run performance monitor to check/evaluate background processes that may not be needed.

Ccleaner is a good utility to clean up your pc, but it will only do so much.
