Did you find out about that Windows entry - microsoftwindows (unknown) file location is: C:users\JJLandry\AppData\Roaming\Windows32.exe - that one seems very questionable to me.

No I never did find out whats its for but when I ran the Malware Bits software it found 12 Infections. I cleaned those all up but that unknown one is still there and I have no idea what it is for either. Any help would be nice, I do not want to disable it if it is needed.

Thanks

I thought that the hotfix linked in the OP sounded like it might be useful on my system, but despite the fact that the article says that it applies to SP1, the actual download options are only SP2. I guess that they updated the downloads, but not the article.

Ritual,
That one is up to no good.

Now please follow ALL steps listed in my prior post.

It is very important that you follow all steps to the letter.

Then we can correctly diagnose your problem.

CCleaner is a good program.

After following all steps previously listed, then run CCleaner.

On CCleaner's left-hand side are three icons for Cleaner, Registry and Tools.

Click on the Cleaner icon then click on Run.
Click on the Registry icon then click on Scan, then when asked if you want to fix the registry, choose Fix All

Click on the Tools icon. Click on the Startup button | Click on the Save to Text File button on the bottom right-hand side.

Attach that text file to your next post.

Um...I don't really think that a one minute bootup would be considered a "hell of a long time". I mean my computer takes about 24 seconds to POST from a power button press and about 16 seconds to boot up Windows from my SSD. That's about 40 seconds right there and I think this machine is pretty darn fast. So, if 40 seconds is fast, and 60 seconds is abysmal that's a pretty small window.

Well there's the file you were looking for maybe it will help. I hope it helps because it would be nice to have a nice fast quick boot up!!

Copied from the article:
Prerequisites

To apply this hotfix, you must be running one of the following operating systems:
  • Windows 7
  • Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
  • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Ritual,

Change these three to no.
Yes HKCU:Run ehTray.exe C:\Windows\ehome\ehTray.exe
Yes HKLM:Run avast5 C:\PROGRA~1\ALWILS~1\Avast5\avastUI.exe /nogui
Yes Startup User Xfire.lnk C:\Program Files\Xfire\Xfire.exe


You can do that by:
WIN | MSCONFIG | STARTUP tab | uncheck the box by ehtray.exe, avast5, and xfile.lnk


Also.

Using Control Panel | Programs and Features
uninstall AVAST.

Run the FULL malwarebytes scan.
Installl microsoft security essentials,
run the microsoft security essentials quick scan.

Ritual,
Great. Now let's make sure that your system is clean and safe.

When you uncheck one of those items,
you do NOT stop the program from being able to run.
You do STOP the program from running at startup time.


The high priorities now are:
1. Uninstall avast,
2. Install Microsoft Security Essentials,
3. Run the MalwareBytes full scan,
4. Run the Microsoft Security Essentials quick scan
