Hello Howlin1.

That is not a lot of applications.
Try with disabling avast! Antivirus (A/V software can slow your computer) , Gadwin PrintScreen , Skype , and Daemon Tools Pro (Daemon Tools , slowed my computer too and I uinstalled this).

And one small question : Do you have MSE with avast! ? I think Microsoft Security Client is for MSE. ONLY If you have this 2 or more A/V software , uinstall all of this and try again. Then back only one software of that type !

Good luck.
Trinty :)

Windows 7 Professional x64 Service Pack 1

Remove Avast and leave security Essentials. After that, disable everything that is running at startup except Microsoft security Essentials.

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

I recall reading before that Daemon Tools and Windows 7 don't get along very well. Try windude99's advice. That should, if nothing else, determine of it is something running at startup causing the problem.

Windows 7 Starter 32 bit

I left my laptop off all night and turned it on not too long ago and it didn't take near as long to load a user profile as it use to. The only things I did last night was run the sfc /verifyonly and make a new user profile. When I went to log on today to my user profile it loaded up pretty much straight away I didn't need to log into any other profile first....So all I needed to do was to make a new user profile?

Why did you run sfc /verifyonly? Run SFC -SCANNOW Command

Remove Daemon Tools which is not compatible with Win7.

Use Microsoft Security Essentials with Windows firewall and no other AV. Keep Windows Updates current, especially any drivers in optional Updates.

Run a Clean boot as shown in Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7
