Try this. Hold down the Windows key & press R, then type MSCONFIG and press enter. Click the Startup tab. Now you can uncheck anything there except your antivirus program. Try unchecking a few and reboot. Many programs add to this list when you install them without asking you, and they are a nuisance. MS Office and Adobe are two of the worst offenders.

Good luck.
