Okay, thanks, will update the Java in the morning and thanks for the link whs, first time i ran the programme i got a boot time of 2min 11sec :S after using it to identify the 'trouble makers' i've got it down to 1min 11sec still not great but a massive improvement (Windows media player sharing service taking up 19 seconds :S) Now in the boot, the main thing is 'MS Antimalware' taking up 17 seconds, then 'system', then 'netsvcs' then 'client server runtime process' and so on... (In order of time taken to boot) any advice on which of these can be disabled? (Obviously excuding 'system' :L)
Thanks for the help.

At least once per week here we have performance problems where the OP mentions they use a Registry Cleaner. If you are not using CCleaner Registry tab then it's likely the Registry cleaner you're using is one of many sales scam operations sold through web ads which do nothing, have no genius behind them, and cause compound performance problems after just a short time's use.

Uninstall the Registry cleaner crapware then see if you have a System Restore point you can get back before it's use. If not work through the following troubleshooting steps

If minimizing your Startup programs and the other steps don't help, use the tool which the Pro's use to trace slow startup: Trace Windows 7 boot-shutdown-hibernate-standby-resume issues - MSFN Forums

The Antimalware I would put on a deferred start (maybe 1 minute later). Then you can already work whilst this is loading. Those other system processes I would leave alone. But maybe there are some other minor buggers you can also defer - but do that only if you know what they are.

I'm still working on boot time issues of my own, but here is a method to use the Event Viewer in a fashion that might help find a problem"

Thanks for the reply and the link, but coincidentally i have already been on that exact site and through that process, but good look with your own boot issues.

Here is another possibility, if you have SP1 installed. I have not tried it, because I don't have SP1 installed:

An update that improves the startup performance of Windows 7 and of Windows Server 2008 R2 is available

Okay i think that has worked Firstly, using the programme 'Soluto' (that whs provided a link for ) i managed to get the boot time down to around 75 seconds by removing certain programmes etc. Now after installing the hotfix seekermeister provided the link for the boot has gone straight down to 52 seconds . It's almost down to what it was before, but 52 is good enough for me so i won't worry about that too much, but maybe a bit more tweaking could save a couple more seconds, maybe different security software? I am currently using MSE, is there anything that uses less resources?
Thanks again,
Rob.

The thing that I don't like about Soluto is that it sends data back to Soluto each time that you boot, and if you uninstall it, what ever tweaks that it made are lost.

I have found both MSE and Nod32 to be pretty light, but I uninstalled MSE because of some kind of problem that it caused on my network...I really can't remember what it was now. Of course, Nod32 is a paid program, so that may be a factor for you. What do you use now?
