start up menus and hard drive thinking too hard
I have got a toshiba laptop which is 18mths old with windows xp.
I am finding it extremely slow when i turn it on as there is a lot of
programs in which startup that i really don't want to startup when it is
turned on.
Also the hard drive is constantly running.
I am about to start studying again and would like to fix the problem before
it causes any more. I am not very computer smart and technical words confuse
me. Is there anybody that would be able to help me with this?
I have been told to turn off automatic start up on the control panel but i
can't seem to find the right part of the control panel.

please help me!

This newsgroup is for Windows Vista. You may get more help in the
microsoft.public.windowsxp.general newsgroup since it is for Windows XP
users.
