Hi. I time my computer loading time from the time I press the power button to the time the last widget loads. The total time is about 3 minutes 30 seconds. I can probably use my PC after 2:30 minutes, but the network may or may not be available. Widgets takes the longest to load. I am physically connected to the Cisco router. I am interested in drastically reducing load time and not 25 seconds for example, as I recently read in the magazine. So perhaps a minute shaved off will be a good amount of time. Without running a special software, here is the list of items that I know are loading.

Avast
Malwarebytes Full version
iTunes
Quick Time
PowerPanel Personal Edition (Cyber Power Battery) I tried it without this software, and load time is the same.

Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V LX; Processor: Intel i5 2500k; RAM 24GB: CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800); CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800); Video Card: MSI AMD Radeon RX 470 Gaming X 4G GDDR5; Power Supply: OCZ ZS Series 650W 80PLUS Bronze High Performance Power Supply; Multi-card reader: Nippon Labs Delux 3.5" Internal All In One Card Reader/Writer with USB2.0 & eSATA Ports Model ICR-BB. Optical 1: LG GH22NS90; Optical 2:  ASUS BW-12B1ST; Fans: 3x80mm, CPU Cooling: XIGMATEK LOKI SD963. So there are total of 6 fans.

May I ask why the extra minute is that important? If it works well once it boots, why does the boot time matter?

If you want it to boot faster, disable the widgets (and other startup apps) from loading at boot.

Well. My old PC loaded for about 6 minutes. My new PC has all the latest goodies and Windows 7. So I was expecting the darn thing to run faster.

But I was just wondering why it takes twice as long to load than before, and why it searches for network for over 2 min before the internet becomes available.

not sure if your new computer is a brand name like Dell/Compaq/HP ect ect ,but if it is they tend to load all kinds of 3rd party crap [to make extra money from the 3rd party companies ]that can cause slow boot-up because they want /have all those programs starting at bootup to get you to use them as 30/60 day trial and then end up paying for said program .,as to why it takes 2 minutes to find you network ,not sure maybe some setting in network and sharing center can fix that ,or maybe a boot up pre-installed virus program causing it

No. I made it myself. It is made from scratch. So whatever is on hard drive is what I put there. And there is not much. No crapware.
