I'm running Windows 8 on a 64 bit Dell
I don't have any slowdown when the system is up or while it's booting.
Just as fast now as it was before the latest update.
But without any particulars, it's impossible to say what's causing your slowdown.
avast! or something else.

Bob, I think if the ONLY thing you've done is update Avast after a fresh (and normal)  reboot, then the variables are quite limited.

There is certainly a problem for SOME Win7 users.

If you then remove it and the problem goes away, it becomes as close to definite as you will get I would think.

A fresh install and the problem is solved.

Not quite sure which other factors could be at play, but given we are sorted now, it possibly doesn't matter to me (except that the other computers in the house will get a "clean" install rather than an update).

Seems normal. avast! and Comodo use network interaction drivers and this delay does not seem to be out of the normal range.

it wasnt happening before latest update...this slowness is happening only after 1456 update...i try disabling avast and it boots normally :)

EDIT: I guess i have resolved the problem..a new network interface update from artheros was installed on the computer after the latest avast update that caused slowness in startup....i uninstalled it via device manager and rebooted first time and it was still slow...the second reboot was normal as before  ;D  thanks! to all who helped!


P.S. Bob, as u said its not avast who is always to be blamed...that gave me a hint...thanks for that  ;)

Of course... without the antivirus it would boot faster.
You can try uninstalling Comodo to test.
Anyway, the interaction between the antivirus and the firewall is the point here.

How did you do it? I mean, "disable the driver"? Autoruns?

OK guys, I finally solve this problem...I guess that there is some problem related to reputation services and streaming updates...Well, I notice that this service now starting much faster with new version...precisely immidiatelly after boot...so there was some conflict...Well try this...In Settings>Troubleshooting just mark DO NOT USE CHROME AS MY DEFAULT BROWSER...I solve my problem...boot time is know FAST LIKE BEFORE...I guess that this issue is related to users who don't have Google installed on their PC-s. Hope this helps

I have no problem with boot up problems.
Why would I check DO NOT USE CHROME AS MY DEFAULT BROWSER when Chrome is my default browser and has been for ages ??? :)

Well, that's why you don't have boot up problems...because you have installed google chrome...but users like me who don't have google chrome installed on their PC-s (i have only IE9) have boot up issue...For example, my welcome screen was 60 second's...and after this change it took just 8 second's on fresh new installation of Win7...I think (this worked for me) that IE9 users must mark DO NOT USE GOOGLE CHROME AS MY DEFAULT BROWSER. New version of Avast instantly put services at start up so there is some service that try to establish route with google chrome to early...and because some users don't have google there was stand by....oh yes some users resolve this problem by marking Only start avast services after system services..but i think that this is better way of resolving this... ;D I hope that I'll help someone  :)
