My computer was recently having an issue with volume system driver...link (http://www.geekstogo...er-t196512.html) The computer was taken to the shop, I got it back and it was working fine then all of a sudden it is taking the thing 5 mins or more to boot up. I asked the malware staff to see if it was possible malware causing this. Lustiano said there was no malware on the computer to post here. Hope you have any ideas before it goes back to the shop. Thanks for the help.

Download and run ATF Cleaner:

Click "Main" > check everything except 'Prefetch', this first time using it, then click "Empty Selected". Do the same for FireFox or Opera if you use either of those browsers.

Next, go to Control Panel > Internet Options.
On the General tab under "Temporary Internet Files" Click "Delete Files".
Put a check by "Delete Offline Content" and click OK.

Now download and run Auslogics Disk Defrag:

Take a look at Black Viper's suggested configurations for "Services"
http://www.blackvipe.../servicecfg.htm

Restart your machine after doing all of the above.

If it's still booting too slow, you may have a conflict with AVG 8 and Spybot search and destroy.
AVG 8 isn't playing nicely with other applications and it's been bundled with 'LinkScanner', which really slows your system down when on the Internet.

I had done all you said to do but it still wasnt helping. Someone told me to disconnect my Lex mark printer from the computer and when I did that it booted up just fine. Thanks for the help.
