Hello , i need help to figure out how to fix this super slow startup issue. This laptop takes at least 15 minutes to load before it gets to the log in screen.. it was doing fine about a week ago where it would get me to login screen less than a minute before.

Here are the specs of this laptop,
Acer Aspire E15 , E5-571G-57LH
Intel Core i5 5200U @2.2Ghz
NVDIA GeForce 840M with 2 GB RAM
4 GB DDR3 Memory
1000 HDD
DOM: 9/12/2014
Intel HD graphics 5500
Windows 8.1 64bit (6.3 Build 9600)
BIOS v1.24
Directx 11

Now i'll talk about what i did with this laptop. When i found out this issue i tried to fix it, i thought it was malware/virus, so i did use malwarebytes to scan for viruses, but it still didn't fix the problem. So i thought if i system restore this back to several weeks back it would do the trick, so i ran system restore to an earlier point about 2-3 weeks ago, but when system restore is running , it had an error because it says it could not system restore as AVG has a file or something that was blocking it, so the restore wasn't complete. Next, i tried uninstalling AVG so it could system restore next time and finally i could restore it but the slow booting speed still exists.. as a last resort i ran reset my laptop to reset everything and now i have a fresh new laptop. but sadly the slow startup is still here... and that is the main issue, but there's also some side issues like windows explorer run time error occurring and the date of my laptop would jump 10000 or 20000 years forward some times after i restart the laptop. the date jumping issue started when the system restore before was not complete. i've also been getting windows/system/rundll32.exe runtime error 

These are the things i had done.. i really had no idea what to do next to fix this laptop sad.gif If anyone can help me out here it would be grateful.
Please and thank you.

Please perform a clean boot state to find out if any third party programs or services causing slow boot time.
