Why is laptop slow in booting up with windows 7?

even with windows 7, actually my start up was of reasonable speed. However, recently after I renewed my anti virus subscription for Norman Security Suite and downloaded some files,it began to boot up slowly (can see the cursor but wait for a long time before the screen appears). Anybody have any ideas?

  1. Check if you have too many programs running at system boot-up. For the sake of safety, it is necessary to have anti-virus, anti-spyware software or security center run as Windows 7 boots up. But some people have many other unnecessary programs in their startup list too.

    The more startup items, the slower your computer turns on. Because your system needs time to load necessary data and start the programs. If you set too many programs to run with system, you will find the boot-up process is extremely slow. So you need to disable some programs and eliminate them from the list.

    I hope this helps!
