High CPU usage when laptop starts

I have a Lenovo Y500 laptop with a 120GB Crucial mSATA SSD in which the OS is installed(cloned the earlier C drive).

Nowadays, when my laptop starts, its CPU usage skyrockets to 90%(even upto 100%) for about 4-5 minutes, then it settles down. This is when power is connected. When its running on batteries, max CPU frequency is 1.17 GHz, so it tskes more time to settle down.

During these 5 minutes everything else runs fine, except for games n other CPU intensive tasks. So how can i solve this problem without reinstalling the whole OS ??

Which antivirus do you use?

Remove softwares you don't use will help in this situation.also you can disable unneeded startups to speed up boot time.

Gear up ...
Boot time is around 10-15s (till my desktop)...... I don't think Bitdefender is to be blamed.

You can see in the pic which processes takes up more usage, some of them are:
- Service Host Network service (4)
- WMI Provider Host
- System

If you are using Win 8
Press ctrl+shift+esc
go to startup see which apps are high impact on boottime.

Its something else
High startup impact apps were present since the day I purchased my laptop

When I researched it in Internet, many others had the same problem, but the solution which worked for most of them didn't work for me

I was using bitdefender earlier and it was taking a big toll on the performance even after boot. So I replaced it with 360 and my laptop is booting up in 6 to 7 secs which was 15 sec earlier.

I'm using Bitdefender for past 3 years..... Personally I don't think it impacts performance much
