Step 1. Update the explanations of your anti virus and run a complete scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable problems. Notice that some viruses need additional steps until they could be removed; usually a internet search will find specific directions or a special removal tool.

Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each requires a small bit of resources while your personal computer is running.
In case you are unsure about what could be safely removed, remember that BC maintains a really complete Startup Database that contains information about whether the questioned item is required, discretionary, or unnecessary.
At the same time, remember that those icons in your Background also take a small number of trunk time to set themselves.

Then use Window’s Disk Cleanup to remove temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
