|That and you might also check your list of Programs and see if something is there that perhaps shouldn't be there. |
It also might be a good idea to access the MSCONFIG menu and trim some items from the startup tab that you don't need when you immediately access Windows.
While you're at it run a virus scan and download a program such as MalwareBytes that scans for malware (remember to do this all in safe mode to start then do another scan in normal mode when things are cleaned up).
If all else fails then backup your data and reinstall Windows.
