I would start by running
cmd.exe as a admin (windows key + x then type A)
then run system file checker to check if there is a corruption in your OS files.
sfc.exe /scannow

lots of other things to check, maybe boot into safe mode and see if the boot and shutdown is still slow.

EDIT: I would also try and log on to a local machine account and not a internet account as a effort to see if the problem is isolated to the network subsystem.

By today (2-17-14) you've probably already solved your problem but thought I'd throw my two cents in
if it's worth anything....
1-what kind of machine do you have?
2-what's the cpu speed?
3-how much Ram do you have installed?
4-what size Hard Drive do you have?
As trite as it sounds, the four do make a difference.
Let me or us know what you come up with and good luck.

So you are inferring that Win8.1 is less efficient (slower) than 8.0? That's progress! Great upgrade Microsoft.

"WOW"
I don't even remember this one, but that's for giving me some info....the problem has cleared and yes at the time Win8 sucked as far as I was concerned...
I'm using it now because of my doing the following:
when my new system booted up with all those screwy mobile apps, I just deleted "ALL" those that I did not want or think I'd be using...that free'd up a lot of space...secondly, I installed Classic Shell to give me an XP look alike system and I'm flying now....but thanks for responding...
