Slow boot times on caviar black?
It seems over the last month or two my boot times for windows 7 have greatly increased. Of course my harddrive is much fuller than when I first bought it and I have some starup programs but it still doesn't seem it should take so long. I don't have an exact time but I know it is a fair bit slower. Anyway I have a 1 tb black in my i7 rig, with around 300gbs free and recently defragged. I have around 85 processes running after startup, mainly, kaspersky, utorrent, ratiofaker, everest, realtemp, printer and g15 software and deathadder software. Would this make it boot slower? Also it's not really the login that is slow it is the black screen that says windows before you get to the login screen

All your driver and utilities software like mouse software start during this black screen. This is your problem. I think you should disable few thing like torrent related software, evrest and realtemp. Do you really need them at startup? I don't think so.

85 process is huge I have win 7 and when I have utorrent and am gaming have web browsers open lets just say multitasking I never have more then 50 and 50 is allot , normally I have around 45 process's but that is because I am multitasking, for one you don't need antivirus running all the time unless you are downloading or just finished download a file or files that you are not sure of. google mo0st of your process's and make sure that you need them on.

It says 79 processes now buy I can only see around maybe 40 in the list displayed, mainly things like kaspersky, razer, loghotech, logmein(can't find a way to stop autostart), and fences, also iTunes backround processes

you can disable them via windows. press start, in the search bar type msconfig and in the start up section you are supose to have everything that start with the computer. Remove the one you don't need.
