I have a computer, I run Windows 7 Ultimate and the computer itself is about 1 year, maybe slightly less old. It usually takes anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes to reboot, as in until I can actually open up new windows/processes. Anything else runs PERFECTLY normal, as if there are 0 problems. All of my games still run with flawless performance. It just seems to take AGES to open anything even though my Physical Memory and CPU usage remain at 50% or under most of the time. I tried many different thinks like cleaning out my computer, deleting programs I don't use, Disk Cleanup, ran multiple anti-virus software. I'm kinda running out of answers. I'd hate to think it's my processor going bad because this computer really isn't that old. Any ideas?
Download and install "Soluto" from the link. Make sure to carefully uncheck the free junk cnet attaches.
Reboot, and unfortunately you are going to have to reboot 2 times.
This software will tell you what is taking so long in the boot process. Screen capture and post the results screen.
A few things will stick out taking multiple minutes.
Then we know what is taking so long. In the meantime budget for $115 for a 128gb SSD (boot drive only) to make boot times even faster. You can re-install all your existing software on your hard drive if necessary. Either that or get a bigger SSD.
If you have the time and patients you can use Autoruns to deactivate unnecessary start up tasks.
