Sorry to have left you waiting.
I have just re-examined the siutation and having seen that the Malware expert also advised on some matters as we did and then with you completed a clean up of the many - in fact too many extensions, toolbars and add-ons running in Firefox I have unfortunately no further suggestions to offer.
I cannot understand how Windows Defender appeared in the previous log, as outlined on my post the installation of MSE nornmally uninstall the Defender. Windows Defender was in many aspects the pre-cursor to MSE.
However there is no sign of it as you say in the Programs - add/remove and neither is there any sign of it in any other logs.
Good luck please of course post back if you feel there is still an unnacceptable delay in loading windows.
Re initial boot time - do you have quickboot enabled in BIOS setup - if your BIOS is so designed.Using the Quick Boot Feature of the BIOS
All systems initialize in more or less the same way. During the power on self test mentioned earlier, the BIOS checks the hardware devices and counts the system memory. Out of all of the different types of system memory, the random access memory, better known as RAM, takes the longest to be counted. Counting the RAM takes time, and on a machine that has large amounts of RAM, this calculation can take several seconds. For example, a machine that has 512MB of RAM may take up to 3 seconds just to count the memory. On top of the RAM counting, a few other tests need to be done because your computer wants to make sure that all of the hardware in your computer is working properly. All of these system tests are not needed every time that you boot, and can be turned off to save time. Most system BIOS's offer a feature called quick boot. This feature will allow the user to turn off these test. Other BIOSs only allow you to turn off the memory check, which will still cut down on a lot of time.
