So i have:Ccleaner,hitman pro,antimalwarbytes,itunes,adwcleaner on my hp laptop. Is that why it is so slow for it to load up before i type in my password and when i do type in my password.
I already have 4 gb of ram.

Best Answer:

SHERISE NICOLE LITZ SHERBERT: itunes is what slows it down, it never worked right on a windows system. It starts a whole load of background services that use up most of your laptop's memory. If you want to keep it running, go to a hardware shop and ask if your laptop's RAM can be extended by 4 to 8 gigabytes. Usually that can be done for a cheap price, and while you're at it, buy an external hard drive (1 TB or so, they come cheap these days) and move your audio and video files to the external drive. That way, your laptop may last another two years or so.

Other answer:

SHERISE NICOLE LITZ SHERBERT:
Yes. Too many programs at startup, and especially multiple security programs, will REALLY slow a machine down.
Starrysky:
Yep. Full of it. Unload with msconfig from Run option.
