boot up time slowed

I have a Vaio E series
Core i5 2.40 ghz, 4gb RAM, ATI, Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit, 500 gb HDD, Norton 2010.
Months ago, it's boot up time was normal around 50-60 sec. But now, it started to slow,I went to msconfig>startup> and only synaptics pointing device driver, microsoft windows operating system, and catalyst control center are enabled.
But in services there are alot that are running(i hide all microsoft services)
adobe active file monitor v8
amd external events utility
apple mobile device
bluetooth service
intel proset/wireless event log
flexnet licensing service
google update service
intel rapid storage
intel management and security application local management service
norton internet security
protexis licensing v2
intel proset/wireless registry service
intel sample collector
intel management & security application user notification service
vaio event service
vaio power management
vaio content folder wather
vaio content metadata intelligent analyzing manager
vaio content metadata intelligent network service manager
vaio content metadata xml interface
vsnservice
vuagent
What can I disable? Or what should I do?
thanks

OK then there may be a problem
Make a full anti virus scan
Download and run a full scan, after update of malwarebytes.
Defrag
Chkdsk
Clear all temporary files etc.
Optimize Windows 7
How does it boot in safe mode?

Im surprised that you did not find the problem. There is only one other tweek that I know; results are doubtful
Go to msconfig
boot
advanced
tick the number of processors box and put the highestest number.
If it does not help just put it back the way it was
You may have to disable the UAC

Its your decision as to whether the problem warrants that much effort.

Nothing changed. I think the norton internet security is the one which makes this slow. what do you think?
