Windows 7: Extremely slow boot speed

Extremely slow boot speed

The speed used to be optimal, but in the past weeks it increased up to 4 minutes which is insane.
I disabled most of non microsoft services and startup programs but it does not decrease at all. If you need any further logs/info feel free to ask.

Thank you

- Tom

Did you use msconfig or simply Task manager ?
I wouldn't guess unchecking ms services would be a good thing to do ?
Post a couple of screen shots.

When did this happen or did it just happen gradually?

Not sure I've ever seem a loaded up startup menu such as you have,
Norton and Eset ouch,
Most people would suggest only having your primary security suite startup with windows,
Norton being that you pay for it.
But this is far more complicated than I can suggest to do with it,
Cheers.
Clean boot,

in your startup, there's a programs called Starter module that's coming from your user account, what's the path to that file?

Oh thats lightshot a screen capture app, it does not slow down as it's very small and executes instantly. And like i said even if i do a clean startup, it is still being slow

well, sorry i didn't catch this thread, it MAY be malware related, so I'd suggest the following...
run VipreRescue scanner, save it as a folder called VIPRE on your Desktop.
VIPRE Rescue - VIPRE Computer Recovery Solution

run ADWCleaner from here:
AdwCleaner Download

and dowload and install the FREE version of MalwareBytes Anti-Malware(MBAM) from below and run a FULL scan:
Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Malware removes malware including viruses, spyware, worms and trojans, plus it protects your computer

do a scan with Kasperskys TDSSKiller from here:
TDSSKiller Rootkit Removal Utility Free Download | Kaspersky Lab US

and finally, a scan with MalwareBytes Anti-Rootkit (MBAR)

NOTE:
make sure you run the above tools with Administrator permissions by right clicking and selecting run as Administrator

hope everythig works out
