Hello Nudzore. Just a few questions to try to help your slow booting problem. In your title you say you reformatted Windows 7 32 bit but your computer specs say you're running 64 bit. Could you clarify please. Also, did you use a full install disk, a factory recovery disk, or an upgrade disk when you reinstalled 7?

Some of the more common reasons for slow boot are too many things trying to run at start up, especially bloatware installed by a factory recovery disk. A resource heavy antivirus or antispyware program trying to run a scan at boot. One of our experts prepared a troubleshooting checklist. (Thanks to gregrocker for this.)

"Here are the troubleshooting steps I would run on your install over the next few days. Most are best practices maintenance upkeep, but they will also find problems. Feel free to post back any questions or to discuss them further:

"Study the Event Viewer>Custom>Admin view for repeat errors to google text and ID# for resolution.

"Check also the Performance log on Advanced Tools page accessed by clicking your WEI score link at Computer>Properties.

"Check for cued issues at top of Tools page, Generate A System Health Report.

"Look for issues cued in Action Center in System Tray.

"Type "Solutions" in Start Search box to see if any have been sent for Problems reported or not. Always report problems when asked as Windows 7 is interactive this way.

"Check for infection by installing Malwarebytes, update, run a Full Scan. Many issues can be solved by running a free lightweight AV like MS Security Essentials or Avast 5 with the Windows 7 Firewall for best performance. 32 bit Avast 5 will give you a deep boot scan.

"Try a Clean Boot Procedure to learn what programs are running unseen which can be causing problems. Turn off all Startup items except AV and gadgets: Startup Programs - Change

"Some of these steps suggested for cleaning up a factory bloatware install might help.

"Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to repair any damaged or corrupt OS files.

"As a last resort before reinstall try a Repair Install which can fix most problems as it reinstalls the OS while keeping all programs, files and settings in place.

"Tips for a clean reinstall, which is actually better than getting a new computer with today's bloated factory pre-installs."

Hope some of this helps isolate why you're having this issue. Please post back and let us know what you find.

What I would do if performance doesn't improve after running through the standard troubleshooting steps above is to decide which bit-version you want, then clean reinstall following these steps to get a purrfect install: Clean Reinstall steps
