    Before going there, you obviously have various 'sweepers' starting when Windows starts.

    Did you install Window Sweeper? While Window Sweeper removes all history traces from your computer, many of those files are there to make your surfing experience go faster. If you continually remove all your temporary Internet files, cookies, prefetches, and other historical files, Windows, or your browser has to download all them each time you revisit a site.

    If me, I would uninstall Window Sweeper and stick with a more popular cleaner, such as Windows own, Disk Cleanup. If you feel you must keep Windows Sweeper, it should have a menu option to not scan at Windows start. And you might be able to change the interval.
