Windows 7: My laptop starts off very slow despite having 4 programs at startup

My laptop starts off very slow despite having 4 programs at startup

Hi guys, ive been having this problem with my laptop for a long time now its an hp pavillion dv4-4068LA.

I just restored my system because it was very slow despite having tuneup utilites 2013 working on disabling start up programs.

Everything was great when i restored my system until i started installing programs again including tuneup utilites and it actualy did more damage than good to my start ups so i decided to permanently uninstall the program and do everything with Windows functions like msconfig and stuff.

My startups are way faster now but not as good as they used to be, after 10 minutes of using my computer everything becomes really fast like the old times but i would like to have this speed right at the start up because i know its posible, does anyone have any idea of whats going on?

Thanks alot.

Using an SSD is the only way to have that speed right after Windows cold startup. When Windows boots, it does a lot of random I/O to prepare your startup programs, services etc. Random I/O read for an HDD is usually below 1 MB/s and this makes Windows startup slow while the rate for the SSD is around 20 MB/s or more and that's the biggest benefit of an SSD.
