I would have been able to help you better if I had been able to understand your problem better at first. If you have slow boot up performance it is due to your slow HDD and a combination of startup programs, this is a laptop so I am going to assume it's 5400rpm, did some research on your laptop model by default that's what they come with.

However if your system is taking as long as 4 minutes to boot up, this may not be directly related to the HDD. It could be that your system has been infected.

When was the last time you scanned your computer and with what.

From the very first day I bought, it took nearly 300 seconds to start,but when I disabled programs in msconfig it came to nearly 250 seconds.

i think its 5400rpm.........Why Registered Window has Single partition ?-untitled.png.....but how to confim it?

PMFJI. Agree: Deep scan for infections with a good app (IE, Malwarebytes). Appears your system has always been slow, but that could mean it was infected from the get go (it happens). As for partitions, BACK UP FIRST, then make yourself happy, split your drive in two -- shrink your current partition then create a new D partition in the free space. Put all least accessed data on your new D partition, and keep everything defragmented. And don't expect much faster boot time, not with a system loaded with many apps. Do away with stuff you don't use.

Every anti virus is better than McAfee. It and AVG cause nothing but problems for so many people using Windows 7.

Everything is better than McAfee - even leaving the PC without an AV.

As others have said, McAfee is terrible. Make sure to use their removal tool when uninstalling it, or else it will leave a lot of stuff behind. Since you asked about reinstalling it later; yes, you can. You can download the program itself for free from McAfee's website, but I can't see why you'd want to.

AVG is one to avoid IMO. (In my opinion)
