Computer is taking about 30 minutes to boot.

I am running a Dell Studio XPS 1645 with a Intel 7i processors and 6 GB ram. The computer is working great when it is on, but for some reason today it started taking WAAAAAYYY too long to boot, 30 minutes on average. I have run malwarebytes as well as run it is safe mode. I can't seem to figure out why it is taking so long.

In addition work through the Troubleshooting steps linked below to test your hardware, establish a Clean Boot, utilize the logs and system resources to trace the problem. If using a bloated AV uninstall it to try MSE to see the difference.

Also compare the perfect install in first link below to the one you've done and the way you maintain it, because everything that works best is compiled there.

I would also install Soluto to see its map of startup and utilize its controls to turn off and delay suggested ones. For best performance I don't allow anything to start with Win7 except my AV and Sync.

Thank you for that. I am not sure what to do with it now. It shows my boot times at about 1 min. he problem is that it takes about 5 to 10 minutes to get past the Windows loading screen. Then another 10 to turn from the Blue back ground to show wher eyo ucan enter your log in. And then another 10 to get to the actual part where you can click on stuff.

I didn't see a link. Also, what is AV and Sync?
