Windows 7: Some Startup Programs Don't Start Straight Up When Windows Starts

Some Startup Programs Don't Start Straight Up When Windows Starts

Hello Community,

I extra made a account in this forum, because the people on the forum, I usually use, couldn't help me.
Recently I freshly bought Windows 7 Ultimate and it works very well. But one week later I decided to install all important windows updates and now I have the following problem:
Normally when I start my PC, Steam, Skype, Fraps, Dropbox, HWInfo64, CoreTemp and some other programs start straight up and I can use them instantly.
However since I made the ca. 140 windows updates only some of them start straight up and some need ~2 more minutes to start, which is really annoying. Programs which don't start straight up: Steam, CoreTemp and Norton. This three are the most annoying ones, because I wanna use them mostly right after a boot.
Also when I try to start, right after the boot, Firefox, it also only starts after this 2 minutes together with the other programs, they all start then together in the same second. This wasn't a issue before the windows updates. But strangely chrome works, but I noticed some other programs also don't start straight up if I start them manually in this 2 minutes, but some do.
Stuff I tried to solve this problem yet:
Deleting all windows updates
Repair Install of Windows
Reinstalling the programs, which don't start straight up
Solving all registry faults with CCleaner

Nothing worked yet.
Maybe some of you know what the problem could be. My system is normally super fast and I hate it always to wait for everything.

Greetings Deidaraa

I think you just have too many startup programs - and some are big fellows. I would put the ones I do not immediately need in delayed startup and see whether that helps the ones I want asap.

You would also get much better results if you put the system and those programs on a SSD.

And don't uninstall the updates. There are many security updates that are far more important than a 2 minute delay.

I have all these programs on a ssd and there are 10 total programs who should start straight up on start.
But this couldn't be the problem because like I said also some programs, which I start manually, don't start straight up, but after this ~2 minutes.

Something may be wrong with the SSD. for starters, check the alignment.

If you want to verify the alignment, you use the following commands.

Diskpart
List disk
Select disk n
List partition

Now you should see a result like this.

Partition ### Type Size Offset
------------- ---------------- ------- -------
Partition 1 Primary 59 GB 1024 KB - but 64KB or any number divisible by 4 is also good

The offset (in KBs) has to be divisible by 4.

Alignment is OK. There must be some other roadblock.

Check right after boot what processes are running - easiest in Reource Monitor > CPU tab. Look whether any processes eat a lot of CPU time. If that does not yield anything, look into the Disk tab whether any process has unusual disk activity.

Okay, I couldn't make screenshots with the Snipping Tool because this program also just started after this 2 minutes, but I made some photos with my smartphone and you can see everything fine. Sorry for the super sized photos.
Processes running while the 2 minutes:


Processes running after the 2 minutes:

Also here's the resource monitor:

This is unreadable. Why don't you use the snipping tool to make a picture.

Because this also wont start. It just starts after this two minutes, like other windows functionsm, but the normal explorer works.

Hmm, that is indeed strange. You could try Soluto. It maps each process that participates in the boot inclusing the time it lingers around.
