Network Related Performance

We have a secure router and as long as my Windows 8 laptop has been on for 'at least' 45 minutes, I have no issues bringing up software or connecting to the internet.  Everything else on our network, phones, printers, laptops, etc seem to be running smooth.  However, I have to wait 45 after a reboot often in order to be able to use anything.  We have the latest versions of Avast and Malware-Bytes but something seems amiss.  I am about ready to re-install Windows 8 am hopeful to find a solution before going to that length.  I also apparently, don't have a recovery partition or the original disk, but do have the sticker with the license key.  

Assistance in figuring out what is hanging the system initially is greatly appreciated.

Try disabling all the firewall and security on the machine for a few minutes and see if it works,
slow network issues are very often DNS issues, so make sure it's looking at the right DNS servers and isn't blocking local traffic somehow.

Open task manager and disable all start-up items, restart and see if the problem persists.

Hi.

To start diagnosis, please let's get past vague descriptions like "wait 45 after a reboot often in order to be able to use anything" - what should that mean? Literally NOTHING works/won't start/won't connect/? Please be as descriptive as possible :)

Its just too slow to provide any details. Just did what windows 8 calls a refresh which requires the CD but says it will save your data applications and settings. Will soon see.

A refresh will not keep applications, nor settings, sorry.
