I have a reasonably powered desktop computer. It takes a good ten (10) minutes to complete the boot cycle, until the red light (activity light) goes off. I've looked at the things running (msconfig.) on startup, but not sure which ones I could remove. I've taken copies of the startup window programs and will try to paste them here. (Not sure it will work)
Nope. Can't figure out how to show you.
 
I'd appreciate any suggestions to speed up my boot process.
 
Thanks, Pinegum

Usually when I see startup programs from "Unknown" manufacturer I disable it and see if it solves some quirks. 

Does your computer works just fine as before after booting up to the windows desktop? Because I once had encounter this before, the same boot time problem as yours, and I ended up scanning the system and found some malwares that lurks during bootup. Have you tried running a "Boot Scan" in Avast?

Uncheck,

Acronis,

lxdxmon,

quicktime,

microsoft life,

java,

lxtxamon,

fax solution,

adobe reader,

filehippo,

 

It would probably be a good idea to scan with free Malwarebytes and superantispyware (careful to not accept trial versions), then open a command prompt with admin rights and copy and paste the following,

sfc /scannow

then hit Enter, and last but not least, do a full diskcheck by command window again by copying and pasting,

chkdsk /r c:

then hit Enter, then Y for yes, then Enter again and the checkdisk/repair will be performaed at the next bootup.


All is well in Paradise.
