Windows 7: computer boots slow and load programs

Another interesting setting (in case of a multi-boot setup) is the Timeout setting . The number of seconds you set represents how long your computer will wait for you to select between the available operating systems, when booting. If no choice is made during the set time, the default operating system will start.

By default, this is set to 30 seconds. If you have a multi-boot setup, you might want to set it to a smaller value. Personally, I prefer to set it to only 10 seconds. This way, if I don't select another operating system, the total boot timing of the default one is not impacted much.
so yeah not really... that is a timeout only in case of multi OS selection
OR when you press F8 to access said boot options.. so I will leave that alone..

BUT I did set my OS to 8 cores in the advanced tab... lets see if it boots any faster...

because:

IMPORTANT: If you set a maximum number of cores and RAM memory, Windows will continue to correctly identify the number of cores the processor has and the amount of physical RAM memory. However, it will only use the number of cores (processors) and the maximum memory you set.
soo yeah idk if it will help at boot at all . .we will see..

BUT WISH ME LUCK.. and PRAY it doesn't BRICK my system lol
ok going to reboot now will report back in a sec..

ps: I also set the bot info on.. lets see if that turns up any useful info...

If you had read you had seen that the links provided are to trace boot, shutdown, hibernate, standby and resume.
In my case was shutdown and the bad guy is antivirus.
