Slow computer start up and “autoplay” window pane?

Help! When I start up my computer it is very slow and a small window pane “autoplay” keeps popping up. I close it out but it continues to pop up for about 5 minutes. Do you think I have a virus?

    The reason the computer gets slow is due to the registry files becoming corrupted, or messed up, in simple terms. These files tell the computer or laptop how to operate the software installed on the system. If any of these files get messed up, the computer is not sure what to do and this will really slow down the computer. The other scenario is where you download other software, screensavers, pictures, videos, or even music, and this will somehow change the settings on a registry file. When this happens, the original program that needs that file now has the wrong instructions in it. So, it will cause the computer to run slow, or in a worse case, crash.

    Below can help you speed up your pc:
    1. Click Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools ¨C run Disk Cleanup
    2. Temporarily close Quick Launch:
    Right-click on the Taskbar, click Toolbars, deselect Quick Launch
    3. Open My Computer
    Right-click on C:
    Click Properties
    Click Tools, select Error Check (check all and fix), when finished click defrag & run.
    4. Click Start, Run ipconfig -renew (type ipconfig space renew)
    5. Restart. Right-click on Taskbar, click Toolbars, select Quick Launch to restore

    All these things should be done regularly. The more frequently they are run, the less time they take.
    -Note: Games and videos are mostly graphics. Graphics create large files. If these suggestions don’t help, you might need more memory.

    Last, if you haven’t cleaned your registry in a while. This is necessary. Your registry holds all the information regarding updates, installs, un-installs etc. Each one of those events produces a key. That key needs your PC’s resources and free space. So, if you clean your registry, you make more resources available for speed. Does a registry scan if you got more than 20 errors you should clean it.
