Windows 7: Bad startup

Thanks for all the help.
I have restarted several times.
It seems the only slowness is when I click on a folder or shortcut on the desktop. Not really a big deal.
I have installed: MBAM (but for some reason it only starts every other startup), Comodo Firewall, SAS not active only scans weekly, Avast.
An new problem...When I open a folder from the desktop it opens in reduced form not maximized as I want.

Which MBAM? Free or pay-for? Which version - 2.x or 3.x? Scuttlebutt says version 3 is problematic at the moment.

Hi,
Click the start button and type in the search box
msconfig
Go to the services section and see if you have 2 mbam services checked to start with windows.
Check the box on the bottom left to Hide all MS services to make the list shorter.
Post a screen shot of what is listed there.

Your MBAM version should be just fine -- I don't know why it only comes up the 2nd time around.
"...A new problem...When I open a folder from the desktop it opens in reduced form not maximized as I want..."
I assume you mean the window's folder's size is not maximized and/or not the same size you set previously.
Yeah, I run into that from time to time; end up having to call up my "most-useds" and manually resize my explore's folders to what I want. I have not found a permanent solution yet.

Hmmm I don't have a clue if I got the screen shot attached
Any way my msconfig looks just like the one you posted.

Hi,
Seems you have several antivirus programs installed ?
Even if Comodo is a firewall only the question is why use it ?

Not sure what the heck the Intel entry is for ?
Go to Uninstall a program and on the top right next to the question mark switch the page view to List and post another screen shot.

For my systems I keep them clean.
No auto update anything and no scheduling of anything. I make time to do these things manually.
That way I know what I'm getting and when.

Examples fro this computer I'm using now.

Can't get all the text, but this should work.
I only use Avast antivirus. Comodo is the firewall.
