    Re: Windows 7 taking too much time to boot

    Hi buddy,
    Well the problem you are having is being a common problem these days with any version of Windows after a prolonged use of this operating system. You will not see such situation in case of Linux GUI systems. The reason is that Windows systems are very vulnerable towards virus attack. So after a prolonged use of this operating system when you are using Internet in parallel, then you will see that slowly and eventually your machine becomes slowly and under the supervisions of viruses like Autorun.exe or worms or others. Initially the time amount by which your machine becomes slow is less than 2-3 minutes. But with time this time amount increases and in your case this has risen to a whopping 10 minutes.
    But this is in a very initial stage. So you have a good chance of reviving back to the original stage by getting a good antivirus from the vendor who has provided you with the other software and operating system, or you can download a trial version or a business version of the antivirus from the internet. If your system gets back to normal after usage of this antivirus, then you do not need to do anything extra.
    If still you are not getting as expected results, then you can go for formatting your machine. I do not intend that your entire system and all the hard drives to be formatted but you just need to format that drive which contains your Operating System installed in it, since your Operating System is the one that is being affected. You will just have to run the backup and restore option from your system recovery configurations under your control panel. When you run it, it would ask for your specifications as to where do you want to store the important files and keep a backup of it. In this way just the required system files will be re-installed and the other important personal files will remain the way it was earlier.

    HI,
    it seems that you are facing a great trouble,you have to wait 10 minutes to boot you computer!!!
    this problem might be due to the some virus,so better a run a good antivirus software for whole system.
    it is also caused when your computer is loaded with malwares ,so remove un necessary software which claims false things.
    also you can clear the registry which are no longer used usin software like ccleaner,tuneup utilities etc.
    :-)

    Re: Windows 7 taking too much time to boot

    Dear friend,

    You are saying that, laptop takes 10 minutes to boot up Windows 7, then there must be problem with your hard disk.
    It may contains too much bad sectors which are not allowing your hard disk to boot up faster than before.
    Check whether there is any sound from your laptop during boot up, if it is then you should replace your hard disk with a new one.

    You can use utilities that can check your hard disk performance. If you are using WD hard disk, in your laptop then you can
    use WD drive diagnostic utility. You can use third-party utilities such as HD tune, CrystalDiskMark, etc.

    Thanks!

    Your PC is taking long time to boot up.

    It means your computer is effected badly.

    You have to first uninstall all unwanted programs.

    Make some space in memory.

    Remain only useful programs.

    Also install a antivirus like: Kaspersky or Norton Antivirus.

    Update antivirus with latest defination.

    Now perform full scan with antivirus.

    Now reboot your computer, it will take now normal time.

    Re: Windows 7 taking too much time to boot

    dear friend,
    as you said that your computer is taking long time this is due to many start up programs running in your system
    so go to the control panel of your system and remove the start up programs from your systems so that your computers becomes fast

    i think your ram is less so increase your ram of your computer the minimum required for windows 7 is 1 gb if you have 2 gb then your computer will work fastly
    or another option is to upgrade your windows 7 to windows 8 so that your computer will work fastly
