Don't pay anybody for a BIOS update or drivers, they are provided free. If you don't have the current BIOS upgrade per the instructions on the Acer website.
Yeah I've heard that a lot of times, I'll install Malwarebytes as suggested by koolkat. Acer provided two options: 2008/12/08 and 2009/11/17. Which one should I choose?

Updated the BIOS and now the Intel startup is loading very slowly.. does the BIOS update effects the startup loading time?

How slow?

Free up the start-up, nothing except the antivirus is usually needed.

Use of the in-built Disk Cleanup and Extended Disk Cleanup if required to do so, Disk Defragmenter - Open and Use & Puran Defrag, let us know if that makes any difference.
