    my laptop is very slow to start-up I get the "Please Wait" before the login screen. Once I do log in I get the error:

    "Failed to connect to a windows service.

    Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service. This problem prevents limited users from logging on to the system. As an administrative user, you can review the System Event Log for details about why the service didn't respond."

    it happened after i installed k-lite codec pack because my windows dvd maker was crashing none stop, and now it takes forever to boot into windows.

    ok so safemode doesn't work i just get a cursor and stuck there for 15 minutes or so,
    tried startup repair and doesn't help :(
    tried chkdsk but says i can't do it so i tried with safemode but no luck
    tried system restore, restore to the last point which was removing steam
    tried last good know configuration didn't work

    should also mention before startup takes 5 secs now 5 minutes.

    running out of ideas help? plzzz

    I'm surprised that system restore didn't work. If you're able to, you might want to backup your data and consider doing a clean install of Windows 7. Admittedly, this is rather extreme, but it seems like you've tried most of the reasonable options.
