    From when I put my password in, it takes ages until I can actually start opening stuff without huge lag. Just wondering if anyone could look at the list of things running from startup and tell me what the problem might be

    Don't see anything wrong with it. You can go into msconfig and disable some startup programs, but what I can see, your hardware specs and background programs are good enough.

    It IS possible that a bad stick of RAM or bad HD is dying, but if this is limited to only startup, it's probably not the case.

    click the button that show's processes from all users. Something is using 61% of your CPU but it's not in the list.
