Extremely slow start

Hi, recently my Windows 7 pro 32bit has some problem during the start; icons on desktop are white and are appearing very slowly; maybe it takes 5 minutes before the system is functioning. In few cases I have to reboot few times before it works!! Could you suggest what do I have to check? Of course reinstalling could be a good idea but gefore doing so I would like to understand what could be corrupted.

Start by installing Malwarebytes,
updating to run a Full Scan.

Then run SFC /SCANNOW Command.

Next from Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 establish a Clean Boot, test your hardware, scan the logs for errors to resolve, utilize System Resources to find solutions to Problems.

After doing the scan above I would also check to see what programs are trying to launch at startup. You can use Autoruns to do so.

You don't need anything in Windows 7 msconfig to startup except AV. The others are freeloaders which can wait for you to open them.

The exception is sync, gadgets, stickies, a messenger you must have on at all times.
