first go to your task manager and see what processes are running, then go to run and type in msconfig

go to the startup tab and uncheck all programs that you do not want running when your computer starts.

Although this is totally unrelated to the original topic, ill answer, but you should create a new topic in future....

There are 2 ways to change the name

a) Open Control Panel>>User Accounts>>Click your user>>Click Change my Name....this is the easy way, alternatively...

b) Right click My Computer, click Manage>>on the tree to the left, go to Local Users and Groups>>Users>>right click your user and click rename...

Hope this helps,

Matt
