Right, a straightforward question for all those that know more about a computer than me: what command do you type into the "run" box to open a window that you can control the programmes that run when your computer starts up?

stupid question i know but there are programmes on my friends pc that he doesnt want me to uninstall but they make his pc take about 5 mins just to log into his user.

pain in the ass
try opening the programs u don't want to start up...go to some kind of options menu and untick the box which will say 'start up when windows starts' or whatever it is.

I can't remeber the command
Gear n Shizz:

Washburn X50 Pro
Epiphone Korina Explorer
Line 6 Flextone III 75w

Run > type "msconfig"

Then go to start up and untick all the un-needed bull****, only keep the essentials.

One of the best things you can do to speed up any slow PC!
