I have two identical asus laptops running windows 8.1. I've put a number of things to auto start (drivebeam, network indicator). One one laptop they start within seconds of the machine booting into windows. On another it can take minutes (3-5) before they appear.

I've looked at the serivices for delayed start and they are both identical.

Both machines have identical SSD's and with the exception of one machine having skype they have exactly the same software. The skype machine is NOT the one having the delay issue.

Both have been virus scanned, ccleaned, malwarebytes scanned etc.

Ideas? Very frustrting.
