It might be easier to check out what programs you know you don't need on startup. Look at what is listed in "Task Manager > Startup" and if you need info on any one of them pop back.

There are many possible reasons for slowness.

Was this slow down gradual?

How much RAM do you have?

Malware is a frequent reason for slow downs and just running these three small freebies can unearth a lot which anti-viruses can miss:

AdwCleaner:

Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Clean" button.

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)
https://www.malwarebytes.com/junkwa...
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.

MalwareBytes:
https://www.malwarebytes.org/
(use the "Free Download" button rather than the "Buy Now" button).
After the install go to "Settings > Protection". Under Scan Options move the "Scan for rootkits" slider over to On and Run the Threat Scan. Quarantine anything it finds.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I suggest you use msconfig --> services.

Whatever you do, do not set any services to disabled, just set them to manual if you really want to improve your pc's performance by 1%.

But here is the thing, if you have a decent PC, you wont see any change in performance, this only really worked on my old win 7 laptop.

Also could you provide info about what you are tying to accomplish? As in are you trying to lower Cpu load, gpu load or both?

Simple solutions are often the best

If you monkey with services then keep careful note of what you have changed. Otherwise you could get caught out with some issue later without realising it was due to your action. It should not be necessary - run the programs in #1 first.
