Windows 7 boots and shuts down very slow

#1
Hello All

I use Windows 7 Pro on my Sony VAIO Laptop and I have noticed in the last few weeks that it has became slower and slower so I did the defrag, virus check, disk clean up, windows tweaks and tips un-checked most of the start-up programs and it did make the computer faster except for the boot and shut down and the average time is around 3 minutes for both, so what else can I do before I decide to reformat and set it back to factory settings please let me know what else I can do?

Thanks

Check msconfig.exe and see what the Boot Timeout is set to less than the default. This might help some.

Do you regularly restart your PC periodically? Windows does require a periodic shutdown in order to do some basic maintenance routines.

Hello I have the boot time set at 3 seconds, and on the average I restart my computer about two times a day.
