Windows SSD slow boot

So my computer is booting up very slowly. Bascially it goes in this order.
Power button boot>Quick Bios screen>black screen with info text>starting windows>Welcome>Blackscreen>Windows.

The problem I'm having is this. From power button boot to the Welcome screen takes 20 seconds but then when it gets to the Welcome screen it takes another 20 seconds to move to the black screen(which I can move my mouse cursor) and stays at the black screen for another 40 seconds and then finally Windows 7.
I'm using an ADATA 120GB SSD as my Windows 7 Boot. All drivers are up-to-date. I've done a clean install. When I first installed my SSD it only took just under 30 seconds to boot up Windows completely. It's been doing this for a while but I just haven't been bothered with it.

My hardware specs are,

Gigabyte z68a-d3-b3 Motherboard
8GB corsair vengeance ram
core i7 2600k @4.4ghz
875 PSU 80+ Gold
Radeon 6970
Adata 120gb SSD(500+mbs up and down)
WD 1TB HDD


Any help will be greatly appreciated.

check whether or not TRIM is enabled by accessing the Command Promt (running as Administrator); then go to C:\Windows\system32 and enter:

> fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify

The result will be one of the following:-

DisableDeleteNotify = 1 (Windows TRIM commands are disabled)
DisableDeleteNotify = 0 (Windows TRIM commands are enabled)


You may need to update drive firmware/BIOS as well and look into TRIM further to make sure its working
