Asus X55c, x64, i3, 4Gb Ram, 320 Gb HDD.

It's very slow to start up after hibernation, cold boot or warm boot. Especially slow following any updates to windows. have checked all malware, AVG, malwarebytes etc without issue. Tried to isolate the problem with boot options in msc. Quite often get the disk reading 100 or 99% also, and can take upto 20 minutes to stabilise. HDD is less than a year old. IE, Chrome and Fox all very slow to respond.

Some help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Have you try Clean Booting Windows to see issue resolves while Windows clean booted if does then one of the startup program or service causing the issue.

Can you tell us which process is utilizing HDD more then others for long period of times.

Have you test your computer while the Windows is booted into Clean Boot state?

Can you tell us which process is utilizing HDD more then others for long period of times?

Have you test your computer while all third party antivirus and firewall programs are uninstalled?

Is all Windows updates installed?

Yes,  have tried that, as I said in my initial post, I tried all the various boot options. As for the disk running at 100%, task manager only reveals that AVG and Chrome are 'active', but not to the extent of 100%., maybe 1.2 or 2.5 %.

I think its AVG antivirus causing the issue. And about how much HDD utilize is not much its normal for AVG and Chrome software's.

No you need to uninstall AVG antivirus. I have resolved many issues relating to yours with same result it was antivirus program that was causing the computer slow down issue.

Edit: You need to uninstall all AVG product not just antivirus program.

Seems a bit drastic, there are literally millions of people using AVG. 

 

What alternative would you suggest? Assuming I follow your recommendation.

You see when you disable any antivirus they are not completely disabled as they still have open handles on file system and master file table etc. Without uninstalling all AVG products there is no way to know if issue is cause by AVG products. You have other option to boost speed of Windows and network connection you can follow my instructions at below tutorial to boost performance of your computer. You can also use my program to boost performance of Windows and Network connections.
