HP Envy dv7 Quad Notebook
Third generation i7-3630QM 2.4GHz
16GB 1600MHz Ram
512GB Samsung 840 EVO SSD and second 512GB Samsung 840 SSD
Windows 8.1 64bit upgrade (original was Windows 8 64bit)
Onboard Intel HD4000 graphics
Also Nvidia GeForce 635M graphics card
I upgraded the ram from 8GB to 16GB and upgraded the one hard drive to two SSDs.
All software updates I could find.
My boot duration up until 3 weeks ago was about 20 seconds. All of a sudden, it went to about three minutes!
I have tried rolling back drivers, disabling some startup items, nothing seems to change the boot duration.
If I boot into safe mode, it seems to boot normally, so I figured it must be malware or some driver, but I can not figure it out.
Also, once the computer is up and running, it seems to run at normal speed.
If anyone can offer help, please do. I don't know if I have an infection, or some other problem.
I have run MalwareBytes in safe mode and regular mode - found nothing.
I also have Avast Internet Security installed, ran boot time scan, found nothing.
