You need to look at what programs are starting in msconfig, and untick any that are not needed at start up.
New pre loaded computers often come with a load of junk starting which is not needed.

"removed the antivirus installed new one"

If it was Norton you may well have left some in the registry, and you need their Removal Tool to clear it out.
If it was NOrton, which one was it?

Did you run msconfig and untick any unnecessary items,the only essentials are your anti virus and firewall.How much RAM have you installed?

"New" laptop may have been in the supply chain for weeks or months.

Could be installing Windows Updates on shutdown.

Also, is it set to clear Page File on shutdown?
That takes ages (2+ mins) when set.

Try Ultimate Windows Tweaker (nice little util)

You can switch On Verbose Mode, which tells you what is happening and check the Page File clear is not set. And other many useful things too.

Try RevoUninstaller to clear out unwanted Apps.
If you have already installed them via Control Panel/Uninstall a Program. Re-install them, then run Revo.

Also try cCleaner.

All suggestions are free.

See click here

Type what you want in the search box

eg Revo
cCleaner
or any util you fancy.

Make sure your antivirus is not set to do a scan on start up and /or shut down
