Windows 7: Very slow startup 5 min+ Windows 7 ultimate 64bit

Very slow startup 5 min+ Windows 7 ultimate 64bit

Been having an issue lately with windows 7 taking a huge dump beginning at the "starting windows" screen after wards it can take upwards to 5-7 min just to get to the log in screen.

I have done a diag startup through msconfig with it staying the same time...

I ran sfc scannow but it only gets to 2% before it just finishes, I checked the sfcdetails log and it doesn't indicate any files that are a problem. sfc verify only gets too 100% but there are still no files that show up in the details file, even though it says there are problems...

Any advice would be amazing, if you need any more details let me know

Hello Akirael an welcome mate another chkdsk you could try is - Start > Computer > right click on C: drive > click on Properties > Tools > Check now > in options tick both boxes and the hit Start. It will tell you the disk is iin use and the cjheck will start on the next boot up - just restart and it will run see my pic. The screen will be in black and white (DOS)
