PC Pitstop, http://www.pcpitstop.com, can diagnose the performance of your PC as well as the upload and download speed. It also has a few links to tutorials that give guidance into the programs that are essential and those that are not helpful to when your system starts up. This information can serve you well when trimming the programs which turn on at start up in the System Configuration screen.

I've got so many applications on my computer that my System Resources get below 70% too often -- and then flaky things begin to happen. So, I have a need to trim the collection of programs which turn on at start up.

Editor's Note: PC Pitstop has been added to out Internet Help page.
