Looks like might be happening on every boot up?

Turn off automatic Windows Updating and see if issue improves?
Thx, I'll try that suggestion, however as previously mentioned this issue continues for several minutes after Soluto reports that the boot sequence has completed and the Windows desktop is displayed.

Yes, I know, Windows Update might be running after that sequence is over...

That hijackthis program, try also, but do not check box anything and click FIX, that program is powerful but deadly if not treated with kid gloves.

What's your virtual memory situation on that PC?
Suggesting you zero out your virtual memory whereever it is and reboot with none, defrag the partition you use for it, assuming not on a SSD, then reset to 2048 min and max and reboot again.
If the virtual memory got corrupted and was way too big, I could see it causing this issue.

You may not like this answer, but how about saving all your "data" and doing a clean install.

If you don't have an SP1 Windows 7 disc, you can download your flavor from digitalrivercontent, burn it to dvd, and then proceed to do the install. There should be a COA sticker somewhere on your machine with a license key.

I know it's a hundred update hassle, and then the re-installation of all your programs. But that shouldn't be more than 4 hours or so. Look at how much time has been exhausted already to try and get you a solution to this problem that's really been annoying you for many days.

Paste one of the following into your browser:

Home Premium 32bit
msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-58996.iso
Home Premium 64bit
msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-58997.iso

Pro 32bit

That is certainly something to consider but at this point is a "last resort" option.

Haven't run HiJackThis yet -- I'll add that to the list of things to do.

Virtual memory is currently shown as 8183M (total both drives) and is set for Windows to automatically manage.

I'll try your suggestions and get back - may be a while as I have to be gone for a bit.

Thx,

It looks like we have a fix --- at last! Going through the list of things various folks suggested. After uninstalling Spybot, the problem went away!

There is a downside though -- boot time reported by Soluto more than tripled from 2:15 to 7:15. No clue why this would happen, but for now I'll take it!

Many thanks to all that have spent time helping!

I'll mark this thread solved --- maybe later when I'm not so fed up with dealing with computer issues I'll try to get to the bottom of the long boot time.

Run Soluto again to see where the additional time came from.

I've looked at your driver list, and some are very old (2006,2007). Was this Gateway originally Vista, and then updated to Windows 7?

Please do the following :

1. Download and save this tool to your desktop:
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012

2. Run the tool, and then click 'Copy' - ignore any errors if they appear

3. Use CTRL+V to paste the unedited results of the tool here in your next reply

Vista has never been installed on this system, at least since I purchased it new. It was purchased with Windows 7 pre-installed.

ALSO Note: I subsequently have shut-down/restarted the system several times since my last post. Boot times were all in the 7+ minute range until the very last one where boot time returned to the 2+ range. During the several 7+ minute boot sequences, Soluto reported Kaspersky, svchost, system and Win Explorer as being the chief contributors.

Also - the original problem reappeared with the last shut-down/restart, e.g., constant hard drive write activity and exceedingly slow system response for several minutes following appearance of the desktop. This in spite of Spybot and SuperAntiSpyware having been uninstalled.
