Windows shuts down and reboots very slow

Hello All

I use Windows 7 Professional on my Sony Vaio Laptop and for the most part it has been a great computer in the last two weeks or so I have seen it become very slow. So I did the normal clean up defrag, virus scan, disk clean, window tweaks etc etc and for most part the computer has become a lot fast, but it still shut downs and boots like very slow. I did try the Windows 7 tips that are on here and it did improve some, but today it took 3 minutes to boot and last night it took about 4 minutes to shut down. I am just wondering what else I can do to make it faster before I decide to reformat the hard drive and set computer back to factory settings. Any suggestions would help. Have a great day.

  1. Have you installed programs that start at boot? HP printer update scans, adobe updates, free doggie icon screensavers, etc...?
  2. These are the programs that are checked in the start-up under Msconfig they are Reltek HD Audio Manager, Smart WiFi Helper, Apple Push, and quick time everything else in the start-up box is unchecked. Should I unselect the ones I listed?

    Nope, those are normal startup things, nothing excessive.

    From the sound of what you did already, aside from upgrading your hardware, not much you can do aside from re-installing windows and see if that makes things faster. Although an extra minute or 2 to load may be better than trying to move your files and settings and applications over to a new OS installation.
