By all means, let malwarebytes finish first.

Malwarebytes was done scanning when I woke up this morning. It found 24 infections, mostly adware but after restarting my pc it still was really really slow on boot-up. And I also ran AVG it found 3 infections but it wasn't infections because I put them on my allowed list

No, but I think I found the problem, I have AVG PC Tuneup so I ran a registry defrag scan and it had to restart.

when I restarted it ran chkdsk/ disk error checking. After that it fixed the mess ups in registry and all that and now my boot up is back to normal runs perfectly clear!

But thank you so much for the help! I really appreciate it. I also added you some rep last night
