    I use Glary QuickStartUp and (for this purpose) the less thorough CCleaner. Glary has been reporting that my StartUp is slow so I have been disabling / delaying quite a lot of programs / processes. So far it does not seem to have much effect, in fact my Tablet has got a bit slower — just under 2 minutes at present. I would like to deal with more programs / processes but even with the help of the Glary utility I do not feel able to decide which are safe to select. Can anyone suggest how a none-techie can approach this?
