"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
A million services that all want to start at startup because they all think they're important (when in reality you need maybe 10% of them) and a fair number of auto-updaters (of which you need zero).
They'll all be 100MB+ because no one knows how write non-bloated code anymore and they'll be loaded simultaneously in order to create extra seek latency.
check disk io levels. work nukes my post login performance that way.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

1) check your startup , is there any thing new
2) start , Run (window + R) ----> type msconfig -----> goto Startup tab , untick what ever you dont need at startup
3). Stop unnecessary service like windows media player network sharing service etc.

Sorry, I don't want to. I consider this as a pathological behavior that needs to be denounced. A personal computer should have same or better reactivity as a laundry machine. (So far they needn't boot, let us cross fingers.)
Geez man, what can I say, since I have an SSD and Windows 8, my machine goes from cold boot to ready to use in 9 seconds! I found that slow too!
A train station is where the train stops. A bus station is where the bus stops. On my desk, I have a work station....
My programs never have bugs, they just develop random features.
In addition to inspecting, and possibly turning off, start-up programs/services, you might also consider:
1. defragment your hard drive, if you have not done that already: if you have, and that makes no difference in boot-time, proceed to step #2. I use Puran Defrag (free version) to defragment about once every ten days to three weeks.
2. and/or: open your 'Computer folder: right-click on your boot-drive, open the Properties Tab: open the Tools Tab: click the 'Check Now' button: check both "Automatically fix file system errors," and "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors." Then re-boot, and be prepared to wait a long time while the boot drive is scanned for bad sectors, and (hopefully) any bad-sectors are "fixed."
An alternate to #2: using sfc /scannow from a command prompt: see: [^].
"We live in a world ruled by fictions: mass merchandising, advertising, politics as advertising, instant translation of science, technology, into popular imagery, increasing blur of identity in realms of consumer goods, preempting any free, original, imaginative, response to experience by the television screen. We live in an enormous novel. For a writer it's less necessary to invent a novel's fictional content: fiction's already there. A writer's task is to invent a reality." J. G. Ballard, 1974
It shows you all the programs that start with your computer, along with how much time they take, and lets you either stop them from starting, or delay their starting until the computer is idle.
