Yep just orphan registry entries for files that were removed. So they were inert and of no consequence. :)

Still running well

Yes, no problems thus far. It was a little slow to re-start taking an extra minute or so but it's working well. Thank you so much

If you do have any further problems let me know

There is a Microsoft programme which optimises the boot timing however, it will take between 30 and 60 minutes to run. I can give instructions if you so wish

Ok read it through carefully before you start. The second restart is the longest as that is when the files are shifted around the others are fairly quick. Each run will require you to allow the tool to elevate

Download the SDK web installer from here
Run the installer and select the following:

Leave the location to default

Windows Performance Toolkit
Wintoolkitselect.JPG

You must reboot on completion of the install

After reboot set aside about 30 minutes when you will not need the computer

When ready start an elevated command prompt :

Go Start > All Programs > Accessories
Right click Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator

Then copy and paste the following command into the black box :

xbootmgr -trace boot -prepSystem -verboseReadyBoot

sdk%20command.JPG

Now your PC will be restarted 6 times. With a two minute pause before the tool runs after the desktop loads
After the second reboot the MS defragmentation program is running and is placing the files into an optimized layout, so that Windows will boot up faster
The last Reboots are training of readyBoot. After the training is finished, you'll notice a huge improvement in startup.
