Windows 7: Win 7 takes 15 minutes to boot

30 Jul 2017   #11

Win7 Pro

Okay I ran check disk it rebooted and 10 minutes into the scan it showed that 1/3 of scan completed and that it couldn't read four different sectors .

but below that it said file verification is completed . 247,000 files processed . 1000 large files processed

I walked away and came back 1/2 hour later and the computer has rebooted . So I don't know if I'm going to be able to see the results when it reboots in the event manager thing, as last time I tried this I couldn't find any results there.

I also have Avira (free) and it works well.
What you can't have is two antivirus. You have to uninstall one of them. (avira or MS essentials).
. Fair enough but does the antivirus start in safe mode? . The second question I have is avira has been installed on this computer (my friends by the way ) for two years , apparently always coinciding with Microsoft security essentials, why all of a sudden the problem ? Also, I have friends who for some strange reason deliberately run two antivirus systems without incident

As I wrote, if it boots fast in safe mode, is one of the start up programs.
You should never use two antivirus as they conflict with each other.

But I suspect that you have a more serious problem. A disk failure.
And that is why some programs don't start properly on startup. Safe boot don't load this startup programs (antivirus etc) and it boots fast.

Boot from the Win 7 installation disk, go to Repair launch the CMD window and type
chkdsk c: /r / f
It will check for disk bad sectors and can take all night long.
ONCE it begins, don't interrupt. When it finish you'll be able to read the results
