slow pc bootup

we are having an issue with one of our users here. when we sign on, it stays stuck on welcome for quite sometime. i tried to enable verbose logging and it stays stuck at "applying user settings". i tried a clean boot (disabling all services) and it seems like it booted up quickly. i tried checking the users memory (has 8gb), i did a pc diagnostic (checked the hard drive, did a sfc /scan, checked the memory, cleaned out temp files) and everything came back ok. any ideas?

That is part of Windows 7. Mine goes black for about a second.

Uncheck all that stuff in startup except for anti-virus and then recheck boot speed. I can't recall the last time I saw that many items in startup.

All of your boxes in Startup can be unchecked. Startups are just a convenience so that the program is ready to go after bootup. It's not like they aren't going to function properly if you uncheck them. It might make the bootup quicker too.

It goes to 'Starting Windows' and stays at that for 90% of the time. I've tried unplugging all USB devices, I've scanned my whole computer,...

What else can cause a slow bootup?
This one's an oldie but a goodie... the age-old question of Windows entropy. What else, other than startup programs, cause Windows to take longer to boot over time? Please do not say "installing too many programs", because that is the only answer I ever hear, and I only ever run necessary programs...
