CPU Running High % On Startup - Slow Boot

  1. I would appreciate anyone's professional assistance with this one...

    Scans from AVG 8.0, Registry Mechanic, SpyBot S&D, Ad-Aware, CCleaner, CleanUp! & Malwarebytes are currently displaying 'nothing found' after a few rounds of scans. A defrag has also been done.

    What I'm still having challenges with, is the high consumption of the CPU 85-95% with a terrible slow boot. Once the computer loads the few startup programs that I have... it settles, just a tad...

    Ran MS Bootvis to attempt to cleanup the slow boot...didn't do much. The melody at logon still stutters with the slow startup. Lastly, I also attempted to run 'tasklist /svc', (because it seems that I have an unusually high number of processes running under TaskMgr); it ran a very quick, scrolling list & disappeared.

    My HiJack log appears clean... Any thoughts, please?? Thanks in advance.
