Windows 7: Why does my system seem slow and restarts take 30 seconds?

Why does my system seem slow and restarts take 30 seconds?

From clicking restart to being back on the desktop takes 30 seconds. I though it would boot faster with an SSD installed. My entire system seems slow. I tried running the Windows Experience index (I know it's not a good indicator of performance) and it keeps failing saying it can't check memory.

Anything I should be looking at? Running memtest maybe?

1. Ensure Windows is updated.
2. Run a clean startup and see if its quicker:

Golden's has a very good idea with Clean Startup. I have a question.

What Restart speed do you think you should get and why?

Yes I have noticed you have very nice hardware.

I was able to install the games to the D: drive. The games I have are from Steam and I just installed Steam there and the games followed. The Steam folder is 36GB.

148 + 36 = 184GB. It looks like I could install everything to the SSD and just have the HDD's for save games and files/documents.
148GB seems too large to me - I can install Ultimate and a full MSOffice2010 suite on a 60GB SSD.........perhaps we should look at your Disk management screen too.

I think a picture of msconfig/Startup and Non Microsoft Services might give a clue.

I see nothing wrong with 30 seconds.

mine takes 25

Did the Samsung Magician software come with that drive ?

Did you install it and optimize the drive with it ?

Windows is fully updated. I can post screen shots later, I'm at work right now. I didn't use the software that came with the SSD.
