Now the only thing left is that the logging off and shutting down process takes up to 5 minutes, but I assume that's due to BitDefender checking stuff or some such and isn't an issue for me.

I can use the system immediately after boot up, it boots up very quickly, in a matter of seconds and it's pretty much like brand new.

I can't believe how much java affected this system, god.

Since my ISP has problems my internet went bad for a short while earlier but Windows wasn't affected like before.

I always knew and had a feeling that there was something "trying to call home" for a lack of a better word.
For just in case, after disabling java i also disabled some groove monitor crap that I read was from office for sharing and such, I don't know if disabling that is going to improve performance too when the internet isn't right, but I think it will.

Strange while the lag from folders and most programs is gone
when the internet messes up Media Player Classic still has a hard time starting up and opening video files.

This never happens if I boot up the computer without the ethernet cord though.
But at least now that java is gone from the startup the system is entirely operation even when this happens.

Well can you go to the details of that java process and look where it points to? It sounds like it was a programm running in java. Actually do you use Jdownloader?

From what it says in msconfig it seems to be the updated for java

I think there's still something left
but the improvement in performance since I disabled that java update program have improved tremendously.
Still when the internet goes out...there is still some lag in some areas but not as bad as it was, and at least folders and most programs work fine.

For slow boot download a small program - Soluto (it's free) - install it then reboot, it will come back and tell you what programs start when the computer boots, along with your boot time (and keep a graph of boot time and what programs you installed/uninstalled when). You can then decide what to boot with the system and what not do - not all programs (at lest anti virus, OS programs) will let you.

I've also had the slow down of folders as well on a broken laptop and on this computer (see sig for rig specs)

Thanks but I got the slow boot and slowdown on folders all fixed up by disabling the java update program and some dumb groove monitor thing.
Now all that's left is to fix if possible the slowdown of some programs, fortunately not everything anymore, when the internet slows down/messes up
but that doesn't seem to be nearly as big a deal as it was.

Now I boot the computer up and am able to use it immediately, no more folders slowing down no nothing, it's great.

Since I got rid of my boot up lag, I still had some issues with lag when the internet would go down.
What made things worse, even my adobe programs started having strange lag issues.

After forcing a bunch of processes like some windows sharing thing, windows live...i guess from games I have and other such useless windows related stuff that was legit and not infected or anything, I have no problems at all.

Problem is, these things aren't listed in the startup stuff in msconfig
so I have to shut them off every time now
