    To answer my own question: CCleaner appears to disable the Adobe Speed Launcher, but then somehow it gets re-enabled. Wow. Next step - remove? It's not causing me any grief or problems so I guess...

    Is there any reason why this can't just be disabled with CCleaner? Adobe Reader always loaded fine with out it. I've disabled it before in ver. 7 on an older XP machine. I'll find out, I just...

    Too bad you didn't pick AVG Free in the first place. I've been using it for years and like it because it doesn't nag you with a lot of ads, and it's a pretty good antivirus program. I'm not sure...

    epzcaw, 25 processes doesn't sound excessive (depending on what they are). I run Firefox ver. 34 and task manager shows it using over 272 MB's of memory right now. When I'm done with FF, it gets...

    No, make sure you choose the Applications tab, and things you close should not cause a crash and you will be able to start it again if you need it.

    epzcaw, Avast has really slowed my older laptop down over time with all the updates and upgrades. Also, if you're not, try just running only one program at a time. Use windows task manager to check...

    When I got my new computer in 2012 with an i3, 1.5TB HD, 4 Gigs of RAM, SP1, MS Office (full), AVG, CCleaner, and Malwarebytes, it booted up totally in 45 seconds. As time went by and I had to load...

    No I didn't. I had not heard of doing that before reading this thread. I've cleared the DNS cache and other junk files with CCleaner, but that's as far as I go. As I said before, and at the risk of...
