Windows 7: few issues with the system

few issues with the system

for past few days I am having certain issues with my Windows 7

my start up is quite slow compared to the past & the icons are taking around 20 - 30 secs to show up properly when system starts.

And it shows Audio Service Not running for a while and later gets ok.
Today it shows audio service not running while I am listening to some song
here, this link shows exactly what I see now

can some one give me some suggestions what I could possibly do.

The only thing I know is I have installed lots of media related softwares as I thought I had a problem with HD videos which at last was found the file was corrupt (when I asked my friend to check it out on his pc, only then I came to this conclusion) and not the codecs
I have turned off Bluetooth, as I don't need it.

Hi goodlad. Go to Control Panel/Device manager/sound Video and Game Controllers. Right each audio device and select Update drivers.
In my sig are links to MalwarBytes and SuperAnti Spyware, download them, update the definitions and run full scans with each one.
Do the steps here: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

1. Try using CCleaner to clean your drive.
2. Also, you might want to disable startup items you don't need of don't frequently use.
3. And here's a small set of commands that will clear your icon cache:
(make a new text document, insert the code below and save it "Clear icon cache.BAT", choosing to view "All files" when you make the save; make sure the filename ends with .bat and not .txt)

taskkill /IM explorer.exe /F
CD /d %userprofile%\AppData\Local
attrib -h -s -a -r IconCache.db
DEL IconCache.db /a
P.S. Don't worry about the "Audio Service not running" issue. It's just a small display glitch/bug.
