why is my laptop boot so slow? once booted my laptop is relatively fast but booting it is so slow it takes a long time. i only have one app in my start up menu which is steam.

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.

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)
