    i had to reboot a users computer as it was sluggish, and so i did...

    2000 screen came up, she logged in and about 12 mins after that it finished loading, the poor lady did not have spyware or crap loading, so i thought what the hell took it so long (at that time i was faffing around with someone else), i checked her start up folder and blimey, she had 8 applications in there!

    the reason the call was logged was she suspected she had a virus on her machine, nope it was clean, i removed those items, and told her to open them up one by one when she needed it, so what the first thing do you open when you login to to pc (home / work)

    Well i log on once ever few weeks when i actually need to reboot my PC for something
    MSN, Skype, uTorrent et al are auto start, first thing I usually open manually though is Firefox with SessionSaver so all my last tabs pop straight back up and i continue where I was at
    followed by Outlook 2007 for sorting out my day/week/month :)

    Followed obviously by WoW or EVE or maybe some music and work stuff :)

    MSN is the first program that auto opens when I log in on both home and work machines, at home I then open IE7 and starting my usual surfing and looking about for torrents, then its WMP11 for watching stuff I have downloaded (since I dont have a TV and we are like 9mths behind USA for programs)..at work, I open up IE6 and then Outlook and then get me work done...
