Enter msconfig>Startup and uncheck everything except AV, then after reboots enter msconfig>Services, Hide All MS Services, do that same. After several reboots check back to make sure nothing writes itself back in or turn it off in its Program Prefs or Uninstall it. You now have a clean boot.

If this doesn't improve Startup to an expected 20-40 seconds, use the tool which the Pro's use to trace Startup hangs; Gathering a Startup, Shutdown, Sleep, Hibernate, or Reboot Trace - Windows 7 Forums
