I just got my computer last month, and I've noticed a dramatic start up time increase within the last week. Even slower than my 8 year old xp downstairs.
To compare, before, the time it took me to go downstairs, get a drink, and come back, everything would be done loading.
Now, by the time I get back, it takes an extra 30 seconds or so.
I run CCleaner occasionally, a full scan with SAS turned up clean, same with MBAM. I'm not sure what the problem is, I only have Avast and IDM running at start up.

...the only updates you need and can be done manually is Windows Defender as well as your Anti-Virus program...and i like AVG free anti virus as it takes up hardly any resources...

1) Emptying the temp folder has NOTHING to do with boot time
Here is a few other things you should do if you're as anal as i am, click on start and type in %temp% once the window pops up select all from the "edit" tab and then click delete, some can be left behind due to in use at that time, after you have finished got to Windows, scroll to "temp" folder and same directions as above, click on the back tab when finished and scroll up to "Prefetch" delete all and empty the trash can. Once finished, hit start and type in "msconfig" click on start up and uncheck most all the ones you don't need, then go to the boot tab and choose "No GUI Boot" Then in the time out drop down arrow change it to 10, click apply and it will ask you to restart. I do this with the exception of "msconfig" daily when i leave my PC, it's like cleaning house or washing a car the more you do it the better it runs or looks. If your PC has a card slot for the an SD card buy one that is 4gig or more and use it for "Readyboost" CCleaner is good however you need other tools such as "ATF Cleaner" Google it, it's free and also purchase "Disk Keeper" if you are not one who like's the internal defrag, Disk Keeper defrags before defragmentation even starts. Cheers!

In other words, I'm afraid much of the advice in the above quoted post is inappropriate.
