I should also add that other than standard startup items like the network connections, usb, volume and printer icons, only mcafee and AIM are set to start up upon boot. So it's not like a TON of things are starting up causing such an unusually long time for win7 to boot up. It could be closer to 10 mins to load. I am working on this pc for an elderly lady and have done windows updates, run malware and virus scans along with rkill, roguekiller, and many other tools. Super Antispyware found maybe 83 infections that I cleaned up, but no viruses or other things seem to be jumping out at me. There were a number of toolbars that I disabled and uninstalled. Interestingly enough, I cannot uninstall yahoo toolbar even with Revo. I've exhausted everything I know to do which is why I'm seeking help.
