slow startup

Thanks for any help.
HP Pavilion p7-1380t 64-bit
Windows 7 pro 64-bit

I have taken all the HP Garbage off the computer
but the startup is very slow.
I have gone into startup and disabled everything
that I thought was not needed at startup.
Need some ideas on what to check for next....

Try defragging, disk cleaning, and SFC /SCANNOW.

Very slow can be lightening fast to someone else, it's subjective. What's the bootup time?

Interesting question Sir George, you're absolutely right.

Also check what services are automatically starting, especially non-Windows services.

Hello Phenix,

In addition, you could use the tutorial below to troubleshoot with a clean startup to see if a startup program may be the cause.
Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup
If you like, it wouldn't hurt to go through these below as well to see if it may be able to help improve performance a bit more.

Hope this helps,

2 minutes is't really all that long, depending on what's loading during the boot process: I know that 2 minutes seems like forever.

One thing you may want to try is referenced in the following article;

Virtual Memory Paging File - Clear at Shutdown - Vista Forums

or

Hello George,

I'm not sure what that would do to help with a slow startup. Doing that will only cause his shut downs to take a bit longer while waiting on the page file to be deleted before the computer actually shuts down.

I was replying just before the brain was engaged this morning. The article was for a shutdown issue...as a starter and clearing the cache file does increase the time.

So, in simple terms, I messed up! Thanks for the catch.
