Windows 10: Can I Use "Classic Shell" Menu Setup to Make Things Easier?

    My new Dell....I checked the "flybynight" option. Have 9 things listed. Some sound important to have, I don't know if I should disable any. Have something called "Chromium" and desktop shortcut. Don't even know how I got it, the shortcut brings up a yahoo search box....probably don't need that? And it says "high" under startup impact.

    Then I have delayed launcher/dell system detect/hd audio background process/Logitech download assistant/Microsoft onedrive(?)/realtek hd audio mgr/waves maxaudio svc/windows defender notifications.

    Chromium, or maybe Chrome, is another Browser you probably got as an add-on to some program such as a update to an antivirus program, getting to be more common requiring one to carefully read a page and uncheck things not wanted. That particular program usually can be uninstalled in Control Panel, Programs and Features.

    The best thing you can do is get rid of that 5400 RPM hard drive and buy a Solid State drive, I recommend Samsung.

    SSD 850 PRO 2.5" SATA III 256GB Memory & Storage - MZ-7KE256BW | Samsung US

    SSD 850 EVO 2.5" SATA III 500GB Memory & Storage - MZ-75E500B/AM | Samsung US

    Went to uninstall it thru control panel, said there was some kind of error, may have already been uninstalled. Then asked if I want to delete it from the list of items anyway....I did, then I deleted the desktop shortcut icon. Then I check task manager again, but it's still there.

    AddRam, not gonna do anything like that, I'm just very basic user, among the thousands of others not using a separate SSD.

    Has the hard drive been Defragmented, and have you run Disk Cleanup ?
