Just a thought. You should have your Antivirus Software on your Start-up.

Why do you have Stream there? As I understand it, when you log into Stream, your PC contacts their Server and offers your services to anyone else streaming anything that you have available. This can't be an instantaneous process, perhaps you should delay its opening till later.

do you have any entries in the start up menu for software you no longer use , if you do your pc will hang for a long time as it will still be trying to hand the program , untick EVERYTHING that is no longer used.

i have not tried rebooting but i don't have anything not in use i have bullguard enabled but that does not affect it as i had the problem before that. should i try disabling steam (client bootstraper) to see if it helps apart from that i only have automatic ones (adobe update startup utility, bulllguard tray, nivida update backend and synaptic touch pad)
