After the resent update of avast to version 7.0.1407 the windows take about 30 sec longer to boot!!!

Also I take a look through the settings of avast and i find this two settings:

"enable rootkit scan on system starup"
"enable raw disk access during avast! boot-time scan"

I disable both of them, but still windows take about 30 sec longer to boot.

any ides of what is going on here?

Those settings are under troubleshooting. If they made no difference, then it's not a problem and you can leave them turned on.

My guess is it's just a new version with new features which can tend to lead to program bloat and/or inefficient use of resources. A future update may fix the problem. if not, there are plenty of free A/V programs out there that you can try.
