Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

i'm getting a sense that people are trying to sell me stuff! Sorry, no offence intended.
If you had checked first you would have seen that both of the A/V's recommended are in fact free. Nobody will try to sell you anything on this Forum, we are all here to help each other, nothing more!
Sorry Sue, didn't just copy you, my typing is a bit slow today so we crossed

Sorry, you're right I shouldn't have said that, I do apologise (and I deleted the remark).

I'm just getting frustrated at this, i'm not hugely technical and was hoping they'd be an easier way of diagnosing the problem without downloading and installing even more software.

I expect I may accept your apology on behalf of us all!
What we didn't want was for you to be without any A/V protection. The advice was to uninstall AVG completely then install one of the others so it was jut swopping one program for another!
I would still advise that, You still might have to do a trial and error. Remember you are sitting at your PC, we are just making suggestions!

Thanks, I really do appreciate all the suggestions, and again sorry about my remark, it was uncalled for, just my frustration showing through!

I'll have a go at some of the suggestions over the next couple of days and report back.

Probably the one time out of thousands I've posted freeware without putting the keyword "free" before them!

Isn't it interesting how even the most subtle communications can make such a difference in the interpretation of what is posted. I think we can all see that you're frustrated Bernie. :) Hope you get your problem solved.

Win7 startup delay... xperfview analysis needed.
Several weeks ago, my startup time went from about 30 seconds to about 3 minutes. Can't remember any specific event. LOOOONG black screen after Win7 login, with only the pointer on screen, for at least 90-120 seconds. Clearly, the attached xperfview shows a lot of nothing from about 38 seconds...

Troubleshooting startup help needed
Okay I have had Win7 Prof 64bit running fine for a while. I needed to backup my mbp and all my other HDDs are dead (thanks to a MBP that killed them all, screw you apple). I decided since my desktop HDD is 500gb and I am using 100gb, I could use it. I shrunk the partition in Win7, reformatted...

InstallShield Needed At Startup?
Hey all, I was just going through my Startup's via msconfig when I noticed InstallShield listed there. Is it necessary to have it startup with Win 7? I am just a stickler for what gets loaded at startup. :)
