Windows 8 Metro Apps Auto Startup? Need to disable.

    Yes on the update.

    Unfortunately I don't know of any free software, but some sites will offer a free scan to make a list to save to work from then you can search manufacturers' sites for them. It's a lengthy process, but free. Time vs money thing.

    How long does it take for your machine to boot BTW?

    Well, I can pretty much end this thread now. My machine has been booting faster recently, not sure why.
    I'll try to update the drivers later, but it takes only 1 minute now to boot up.
    I am unsure why it was booting so slow earlier. But it seems now it is fixed.
    Thanks for all your help guys.
