Very long boot up process?

As you can see the system takes up 3/4 of my bootup time and i cant really uninstall anything from there. I tried using the history to track it down but it goes up and down too randomly. I suspect it has something to do with system updates but really, how can it add 30 more seconds back when i first complained at 1m25sec.

Is there anything i can do to decrease this? I'm going to do system updates right now and see what happens.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Honestly, why are you worried about 1:57, it's windows, It takes time, If your computer were to take up longer then 5 minutes I'd be happy to help you since then there actually would be something wrong! – HTDutchy Apr 1 '11 at 14:49

Assuming that a lot of that is stuff initializing and going into memory from the disk, upgrading to a solid state drive is the single biggest thing you can do. (This is a big assumption without knowing specifics of what your hardware and software is though.)
