I'll try it when I get home later on and let you know how it goes. Should i take a note of which non-microsoft services i disable if i need to re-enable them?

At this point they are all enabled so disable all no need to note anything.

You will need to re-enable them one at a time and reboot the machine to find the offending service if that is indeed the issue.

very little differnce when doing clean boot. stayed on splash logo for 2:08 so a 7 second decrease.

In startup i only had 2 items to disable and in non-microsoft services i had only 3 to disable

Open an elevated command prompt and type:

chkdsk /r

Hit enter and reply y when prompted then reboot your machine.

A checkdisk will execute allow completion and inform us of the boot time after the check disk. :thumbsup:

Hey

I ran chkdsk and the first time it said 'disk is clean' or something along those lines upon restart and then it was slightly quicker than before but again, nothing special. I ran chkdsk overnight as that time it actually checked stuff but i couldnt see just how long it took to reboot but I did run it this morning agan and cancel it, and the boot time after pressing cancel was 2:30 if that is any indication

Sorry to but in guys, I have noticed you have got µTorrent (Version: 3.3.2.30260) installed. If you use this to download dodgy software, films, games ect then there is a chance you have downloaded something dubious, you might want to run your Avasts boot time scan and post a log in the malware section as per there requirements, that's if I'm correct in assuming the computer has not always run like this?

Might be worth having your machine checked for malware before we proceed.
Once given a clean bill of health please come back to this thread and I will be happy to assist further.
