Windows 7: Long wait until login form appears - HP Laptop

Long wait until login form appears - HP Laptop

I have a HP 350 G1 and the startup is very slow.
From that the Background image is displayed until that the login form is displayed there is a wait for about 3 minutes.

How do I find out what the computer is doing during this wait?

Hi,
The system you are referring to does not match your "My System Specs" Page. Would you mind providing the hardware of the computer so I can better assist you? Thanks,

Josh

Hi andis59,

Thanks for that file. Your drive is not one of the fastest out there, but it shouldn't hang like this. Have you tried defragmenting the drive?

Hi--

OK, so we know that isn't the issue. How about the HDD health? Try to use HDTune and run a Full Error Scan. Perhaps there are issues with the drive. (Bad sectors etc.)

Good Luck,
Josh

Hard drive appears to be OK, that is good news. The end seems to be slower, but it shouldn't really affect anything.

At this step, I would suggest a full scan with MalwareBytes, Go the Scan tab, select Custom Scan, Configure, and tick the option for RootKits.

Also, what is inside of:

Start --> search msconfig

Run it

Go to the Startup tab

Please screenshot the entries. Perhaps software is running on startup, that is malicious, or stupid (PUPs, toolbars, etc)

Regards,
Josh

OK, I have run Malwarebytes, which took 7.5 hours! Nothing found.
I used CCleaner to make a list of the startup since it can make a text list...

Between the Windows Background Image showing and the login form do anything but services start?

All looks OK.

Yes, but we make sure no malware is hiding anywhere on the PC.

Try to check for suspicious services.

Start --> services.msc

Look for ones with random characters in the name. Like: zhtuge or something like that.

Other than that, it's likely an OS issue, you may need to reinstall Windows.
