Win 7 pc very slow to boot

Hi all, I have a problem with win7. A loose plug caused a pc power out a couple of days ago and it would not boot properly. Windows repair mode was unable to sort it. The restore to earlier time when ok was recommended, and that did not make any difference. I have done a clean boot to no avail. Done virus scan and sfc found nothing wrong with windows. It does seem ok in safe mode, but with the low res graphics, it's bad to tell as most of my programs dont work well or at all in safe mode. When it is running in normal mode it is not too bad, it's just that the graphics are very choppy, and getting a page on tinternet can take 30 seconds. Logically it seems to lye in what is different between safe mode and clean boot, but input from someone in the know would be much appreciated as it is now doing my head in and has already wasted most of the weekend. Cheers.

try disabling everything in the start up menu except Realtek sound card entries and anti virus.
