  4. Run Spyware Doctor 4.0, update it and remove spyware.
  5. Uninstall Norton Antivirus or other bloated security software packages and replace them with efficient software such as Eset NOD32.
  6. Clean, optimize and compact the Windows registry with a program such as Registry Mechanic.
  7. Run bootvis.  This unofficial Microsoft program will speed boot and shutdown times.
