    Slow Boot up & Random log into temp profie on 8.1 Pro x64

    Hello to everyone!

    I have an HP laptop (G6-2005AX) with the following configuration

    CPU: AMD A8-4500M APU 4-cores with Radeon HD Graphics
    GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7640G + 7600M Dual Graphics
    Memory : 8 GB 1600Mhz DDR3 RAM (2x4GB in dual channel)
    Mainboard: Hewlett-Packard 184A
    Hard Drive: Seagate ST500LM0 12 HN-M500MBB 500GB 5400RPM

    I'm using AVG free 2014 as AV and did a full system scan - no viruses.

    The problem is that Windows 8.1 (64bit, pro) boots up really slow - taking upto 6-7 minutes. After it boots up and, well I don't know exactly how to put this - let's say "settles down", everything works as normal. After getting past the password screen, clicking on the desktop tile takes around 1-2 minutes to boot into desktop, after that opening any program (Chrome, MS-Word etc) will take 3-4 minutes - but after it has "settled", everything works as it should.

    Also, another curious problem I am facing is that once in a while, when typing my password and logging in, Windows boots into a temporary profile (no apps, blank desktop) and a message appears on the notification area that "windows has logged you on with a temporary profile" or something similar - I need to sign out, then after I sign in again, my real profile gets loaded.

    I thought the problem of logging into a temp profile, I thought was that the PC was not verified - I verified it by going to Change PC settings --> Accounts. But after 4-5 days, I see the option of verifying the PC again.

    What could be causing both these problems?
