You can post a screenshot easy enough with the snipping tool. But that won't necessarily reveal which program in particular if any is to blame for the problems you have been having unless by disabling one or more startup things suddenly improve.
Certain items for your av protection as well as for video and sound you wouldn't disable right away. You have to selectively and more carefully choose one or two at a time. Or you select the disable all in the Startup tab only and see a vast improvement then re-enable items one at a time until the culprit is tnen revealed.
The Selective startup is mainly intended to customize the list of items that load up along with Windows. If a program has a bad install and is hampering a normal boot this is the system diagnostics method for isolating it. If all startup items are found to be good on the other hand then you have to look at other options like checking the fragmentation level on the drive, run Disk Check to scan and fix errors on the OS drive in particular, and the System File Checker to verify the main system files are present in good working order.
Even Windows updates are known to cause problems at times. Generally you would start running into error messages or things simply not functioning as they should however rather then just slowing the boot time down a bit. For gaming machines especially disabling startup items is an edge for improving overall performance rather then simply addressing any boot issues as one other thing to note.
The other thing you can watch that can be a useful tool is the number of processes. The task manager>processes tab can help while other tools like Handle v3.5
- Process Monitor v3.03
- Process Explorer v15.22
(MS TechNet tools) - SysMon
(open source) are often the preferred tools since they often provide a little more details.
Unknown processes not linked to any program or device install might be traced back to the malwares you have been running into while VIPRE generally cleans everything off effectively and why it was recommended. With the firewall's web filtering however that will certainly keep more from getting on as you may have noticed some pages will now be blocked for some reason or other.
The other cause for concern in some cases would simply be errors in the system registry itself especially if your system is hit by a worm type virus where the present Windows installation may simply have to be replaced to clean things entirely. The first thing done after any malware or virus infection to prevent any reinfection would be turning the System Restore feature off for a session and then later back on to clear out the existing restore points.
Once back on you can manually create a few as well as automatically start seeing new ones created by Windows.. If the corruption in the registry as well as system files is too great and too many problems still arise the last resort brings you to the final choice of simply wiping the drive and starting all over with a clean install of Windows. Usually you reserve that however when all over options have been tried and none work. Then you feel...
blahsaa at the time you will need to spend between the clean install and getting everything else back on again.
