win7 long boot time and constant activitiy signs
I've been using Windows 7 since it was released and never had to reinstall so far. Unfortunately my System seems to have developed some issues which make work with the computer rather tedious. I have the impression that the issues are all related to a massive boot delay. Windows takes some 4-7 Minutes to boot. The masive delay starts after the logon screen. I have not been able to find out what is going on here and where the timeloss occurs. Once the machine has become usable - i observe some serious disc activity (led blinking constantly. This can go on for minutes.
I already tried to deactivate unnecessary startup programs, scan for malware. I frequently let ccleaner sweep the system.
I'd be very happy to see some opinions about this behaviour and perhaps find a way to resolve the issue, so I do not have to reinstall from scratch. I am aware that there is an inplace repair function in Windows 7 - this however only works with a system CD that contains Windows 7+sp1+all important updates. As I only have the original system CD I would like to avoid setting up a working boot cd.

One common thing a few people have posted about is homegroup
With homegroup on the machine can pause for a while on startup while waiting for responses from other network equipment, if its turned on try turning it off temp to see if it helps, i have never personally seen this but others have posted about it maybe worth a try
