Startup and loading Different programs

Computer is very slow at startup and constantly get different and various Windows error messages such as:

1. Windows Media Player has stopped working.

2. Windows Media Center Store Update Manager no longer works

3 Kbd.exe stopped working and was closed

4 search index has stopped working and was closed.

5 Svchost, a few things of Protocol and other

Here are some of the examples, I have seen many others.

As I said, the computer became very slow to start once it arrives on the desk.   I ran registry cleaners, disk cleaners, defragmentation... etc, etc.  The loading of any program from the desktop is extremely slow, but once they charge they seem to work well, except when they are required to "load" other things.

I'm not a computer expert, but I do ok with repair of problems on my PC and others.  This however, left me speechless.  It seems to be a problem with Windows programs by default and, possibly, a hard drive problem.  Any help would be appreciated, and if there is more information that anyone might need, I will be happy to provide it.

Vista and Windows 7 updated drivers love then here's how update the most important.

This is my generic how updates of appropriate driver:

This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded:

-Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system.
For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,
Description, version, product name, company that created the driver and more.

For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
Control Panel - device - Graphics Manager - note the brand and complete model
your video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now, click on update
Driver (this can do nothing as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then right-click.
Uninstall - REBOOT it will refresh the driver stack.

Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party
with their own software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.

Now in the system manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) site (in a restaurant), peripheral
Site of the manufacturer (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for
BIOS, Chipset and software updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
each installation.

Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you actually install
presents itself. This is because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (sound card drivers
in particular that) so to install a driver - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat as

Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW in the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER device - check
manually by model.

Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager

If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver under Windows
Updates, that leaves about Windows updates but it will not install the drivers that will be generally
older and cause problems. If updates offers a new driver and then HIDE it (right click on it), then
get new manually if you wish.

programs, the main drivers and BIOS update and also solve the problems with the cleanboot method
