46 seconds. Nothing at startup. I also have a login screen - no password - so that added a few seconds.

You're kidding! What exactly did you do? Teach us, please!

I just checked and it's 45 seconds for me. All I have (according to EasyCleaner) is AVG, RivaTuner, and my video drivers (81.98). Obviously, that doesn't include Windows stuff.

well acording to bootvis.........35 seconds, but its longer than that, it does the blue bar the 10times, and it takes 15secs for the fogon to windows.....crappy windows, its the downfall of my system
