Computer slow at startup

Hi all. I have a problem, when i turn on my computer i need to wait almost 5 min to operate normal. In that first 5 minutes, a cant move a mouse how much is slow. That happened suddenly yesterday, when i restarted computer. My AV eset smart security 5 didn't find anything. I disabled some programs at start up but i can't fix the problem. Can someone help me please? I don't want to reinstall OS (a lot of time needed). Thanks in advance.

System Restore to a time before it started.. should be an easy quick fix.... and if you have system restore tell you what the restore will affect.... Probably one of the things the affected things.. is the guilty thing,, for your slow start ups.

Uninstall Smart Secuirty 5 and download Microsoft Security Essentials for free, and then perform a AV scan.

Try these tutorials to boost your performance:

A Comprehensive Guide to Speeding Up Computer Performance

I would ignore the Registry Defragmentation/Repair

Optimize Windows 7

Could you please upload your System Specifications, by going to UserCP, then clicking Edit System Specs within the left pane; Speccy is a great free ulity which help you provide detailed information for your system specifications.

Hope this helps,

Harry

Follow the advice above and get Microsoft Security Essentials. Do away with your current Anti-Virus program. If you want to be thorough, also get Malwarebytes Anti-Malware as well. When you get them installed and updated, you can google what settings can be changed if you wish. Restart, go into "Safe Mode" and then perform scans with each program. That will root out 98% of the bad stuff.

I wouldn't suggest installing the two anti-virus programs at the same time. due to the problems which usually arise with two anti-viruses present on the same system. Either install one and stay with it, or install one, scan with AV, uninstall and reinstall the other AV.

Many, many people use Microsoft Security Essentials in conjunction with MWB with no problems. The don't conflict like dual AV programs. It's the same regimen as when people used to use AVG Anti-virus and Spybot-Search and Destroy.

I agree with everyone, install Microsoft Security Essentials. I use MSE, Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware (along with Google Chrome for browsing) on all my PCs and I've never had a virus problem.
