Windows 7: Slow boot time, how to resolve?

30 Aug 2014   #1

Slow boot time, how to resolve?

I have a decent Toshiba laptop
(core i3, dedicated ATI Graphic card, windows 7 home premium, 4Gb rams...)

But my boot time is slow: 3- 5 minutes until all my programs are loaded and until I can start using my computer normally. which I don't find good at all.

I have done every trick you could think of to help fasten my boot time:

- removed almost every startup program (with msconfig and ccleaner)
- all drivers are up to date (using DRIVER BOOSTER)
- I use 2 cleaning software (CCLEANER & ADVANCED SYSTEM CLEANER FREE)
- windows automatic update is On
- Hard disks are barely 30% full
- Checked for virus (with PANDA FREE) - very lightweight antivirus
- Checked for Scan Disk errors and DEFRAG .....

is there anything I am missing?
