Windows 7: SSD Bootup Slowed Way Down Right After "Fixing" Home Network

Ran the test.

Compared the boot up time as follows ("normal slow" in black, My startups and services off - this color):
00:00 00:00 Press start button
00:07 00:05 Asus logo on black screen
00:18 00:10 Windows boot manager screen with options for Windows; Macrium Recovery; and AX64 Recovery
00:21 00:13 Windows logo on black background
00:44 00:29 I hear the initiation whirring of my external hard drive
00:47 00:37 Light blue Windows Welcome screen
01:17 01:07 Purple desktop background, with no icons
01:35 01:25 Icons show up
01:45 01:31 Popup for which drives were recognized, and I'm ready to go

The 14 seconds isn't the difference maker. But this is helpful to know. What next?

Wait, did you mean even Microsoft's? Can you do that?

Next is to disable these startups for good.

Not sure what you mean, so here are a few clarifying questions:

1. Disable which startups?
2. Did you want me to turn off all startups and see what happens time-wise?

Okay, ran it. Realized that the earlier test WAS all startups off. I was confused. Pretty much the same as the earlier test, around 1 minute, 26 seconds.

I've found someone who wrote a blog about doing boot traces properly, and he's willing to decipher one for me, so I'm going to see if he can join us here to participate. Just need him to teach me how to give him what he needs.
