Windows 7: Slow to start

Slow to start

Hello,

I bought the new Acer 4820TG (i5 CPU - 4Gb) where I installed Windows7 x64 Ultimate.
The PC is working fine no problem. But I don't know why, the PC begin to be slow to start 3min30 between the Windows logo and the the login screen.

I thought it was a software I install cause this problem

I did several step:

1. Installed : Windows 7 + drivers + Firefox 3.6.x + Chrome 5 + Live Messenger + Google Talk + Acronis True Image 2010

2. After, I installed: Office 2010 + Visio 2010 + Adobe CS4 (photoshop and Acrobat PRo) + Symantec Antivirus (v12 small business edition)

After steop 1 and 2 .... 25 sec to start.

3. I installed : SQL Server 2008R2 Express edition + Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate edition + TestDriven.NET + Gallio + TortoiseSVN + Visual SVN + Keepass + SnagIt

After this 3rd step, 3m30 between the windows logo and the login screen !

Then I restore the backup n2 install one by one and reboot between each install to detect where the problem is. The problem sometimes it's after VS2010 installation, sometimes after SQL2008R2 or Snag-it or Keepass ..... I can't count the number of restore I did

I had the Acer Timeline 4810 few days ago and no problem with the same software.

You help is welcome

Best wishes,

press Win +R in keyboard to open the run box.

When it appears, type msconfig and hit enter . The system configuration window will appear.

Click the Startup tab there.

Uncheck all the unneeded statrup entries due to third party programs like office , WLM, GTalk, SangIt etc ... But obviously keep the symantec entry .

And dont allow Symantec to get a boot time files scan. This snip may help you
