Hello all, After cleaning out a computer I am still having issues with my boot up time, it takes over 3 minutes to get a workable desktop. it boots up to the login interface fairly quickly, but when I log in it takes really long for the desktop to show and when it does it seems to be busy doing something in the background. I also noticed the hard-drive spins heavily when I boot and doesn't stop spining until well after 3 minutes. Specs: Windows 7(64 bit) with 4GB of ram Core i3 2.40Ghz Here is the list of things I've done so far, and can't really think of much else to do. Installed and ran Ccleaner Ran avg virus software, as well as search and destroy spyware, Unistalled unused or unknown applications Defragmented the hard drive using windows application. Deleted startup applications using the msconfig tool, as well as the registry. Stopped services that are not used. Ran sfc /scannow to check for file system integrity Ran defrag c: -b for boot optimimization. Installed Soluto, and I only see windows processes. As soon as I log in I pull up the Resource monitoring tool and only see windows stuff reading and writing on disk. Don't know what else I can do to trouble shoot this problem, my last resort would be to reinstall the OS, but would really want to avoid that right now. Thanks for any help in advance.
