    That startup list is quite big compared to mine.

    What? Your lists are really long compared to mine, and I should clean mine up too.

    Don't you use your machines for much? Add a few apps from Adobe and you'll soon have heaps in there. Add Spotify and iTunes and a few bits of software here and there and it soon mounts up.

    Seriously though it does irritate me how many programs think they need to run at startup regardless of whether I use them from one day to the next.

    Hahhah, I use my machine for a lot of things, but I kill everything that wants to exist in the startup entries. I mostly use portable apps or make them portable and Adobe tools and many apps like iTunes or other "wanna do it all for you"-tools are beasts which I avoid at all cost.

    Most startups has to do with app optimizations, or update services.

    My computer is used for my home recording studio DAW. DPC latency mon reports no problems.

    That is something Mark should run and see if it reports any or what issues.

    The interrupt to process latency reflects the measured interval that a usermode process needed to respond to a hardware request from the moment the interrupt service routine started execution.

    REPORTED HARD PAGEFAULTS
    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
    Hard pagefaults are events that get triggered by making use of virtual memory that is not resident in RAM but backed by a memory mapped file on disk. The process of resolving the hard pagefault requires reading in the memory from disk while the process is interrupted and blocked from execution.

    NOTE: some processes were hit by hard pagefaults. If these were programs producing audio, they are likely to interrupt the audio stream resulting in dropouts, clicks and pops. Check the Processes tab to see which programs were hit.

    CONCLUSION
    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
    Your system appears to be having trouble handling real-time audio and other tasks. You are likely to experience buffer underruns appearing as drop outs, clicks or pops. One or more DPC routines that belong to a driver running in your system appear to be executing for too long. Also one or more ISR routines that belong to a driver running in your system appear to be executing for too long. One problem may be related to power management, disable CPU throttling settings in Control Panel and BIOS setup. Check for BIOS updates.

    Erm... lots and lots of them. There doesn't seem to be a way of exporting that information though short of doing lots of screen shots.

    Your AVG and Firefox are creating a lot of hard pagefaults. I've tried AVG multiple time and I had to remove it completely because I run into a lot of issues with it. Computer ran very slow and was stuttering like crazy.

    I used to like Firefox, but I have recently had issues with that too. They changed something internally in it in the latest versions and the only reliable browser for me currently has been Chrome.
