Err...Capt. Jack beat me to it but I'd feel much better using the above tutorial, than this one Windows 7 Service Configurations by Black Viper. Not knocking it but I think it requires a bit more savy computer user.

My opinion.

Thanks, I was aware of a number of these thru the tutorial, and twaeked a few more

The black screen has now gone and my desktop comes straight after the welcome screen.

I'll monitor it for a bit longer and report back any changes

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there
I can't fathom half of what those services do -- but sometimes a long boot time can be caused by things like adobe automatic updates trying to connect with the Internet directly at boot time -- and if it can't find a connection it might make several retries slowing your whole process down.

Other things might be creating a HUGE paging file at boot up or some software running various "algorithms" trying to find out what you usually run and "pre fetch / pre load" these apps so when you do launch them they start faster.

My usual solution -- although I'm a non techie in this area -- would be to backup your system and then go for a new install. If you miss anything or it goes wrong you still have the initial backup.

incidentally I'd also backup the system before messing around with stopping services -- since you could be left with an inoperative service if you disable some essential kernel services.

Not a very helpful answer I know but sometimes it's better just to FIX a problem than spending ages and ages trying to find out why you got the problem in the first place --I think in the USA it's called something like "Monday Morning Quarterbacking".
