Windows 7: 2+ min boot up on Win 7, even in Safe Mode (!)

Get rid of those icons on desk top. Make them short cuts instead, if you need them.

Ok, I had some folders and stand-alone programs I threw on there. I moved them to Program Files instead and make shortcuts. I made sure everything else was a short cut as well. Didn't really help.

It'd be nice if there was a boot tracer that presented problems in plain English lol.

What did you change when the problem started?

I downloaded and installed COMODO 4. I noticed when it asked me to reboot to finish the installation, it took so much longer than normal.

But when I disabled the COMODO service, there was no effect. It might have changed something internally.

If not too long ago do a system restore

My last save was too long ago, so I'll check if COMODO has a solution to this problem. I love the FW and don't want to get rid of it.

Sorry for the double post but

COMODO is not the culprit. I uninstalled it and rebooted twice. Nothing.

I checked HP site for BIOS updates for my model. My BIOS is up to date.

Any other ideas are welcome.

Check for unnecessary,
Services (in search type services)
Startup items (msconfit)
Tasks (task scheduler). Probably maintenance defrag, chkdsk etc. Sometimes a new antivius has a maintenance schedule.

I had a simular problem after a botched attempt at changing the settings of my RAM. When the motherboard automatically reset itself is when the long boot times started. After several hours of trouble shooting where nothing I tried seemed to help. What finally fixed the problem on my computer was a manual reset of the CMOS. I hope you get the problem resolved soon.

Check your event logs

Have you checked your system and application logs for errors and warnings? They may contain entries that may be of help.
