Any idea what? I've scanned for malware and viruses and didn't detect any. also used autoruns and nothing appears to be running at start causing excessive lag.

First of All

I suggest as @ Temody said  

CTRL + R and using the Msconfig utility to Remove any startup Program you dont need

Then To services , Hide Microsoft Services , and Remove the ones you dont need

You can also Disable Some Microsoft Services that you maybe not using , and are launched at startup.

Make sure All your Drivers are up to date , That the drivers are defragmented and cleaned , that you have enough
Ram for your current Hardware Setup.

You can also Disable Unnecessary Hardware ,Not everybody one needs that Firewire for example ... You can do that Via a BIOS

There are some Tools that can also help you figuring out whats slowing it down

1) Microsoft Tool called Perfmon wich can be found in


Witch has logs of The performance of your computer , You can check it after a startup , and see whats actually slowing down your computer

2) Performance troubleshooter

 which can automatically find and fix problems

Start button->type Troubleshoot -> click Check for performance issues.

3) The Scan Reg utility

Windows Registry Checker automatically scans the system registry for invalid entries and empty data blocks ...

Using CMD -> scanreg /autorun

Start your 7-day free trial
Since it is on a Domain, check whether it is syncing data with your network during startup. Things like large files or big mailboxes etc can cause this. Is it a desktop or notebook? If a desktop, and you are using outlook, make sure you have disabled cached mode. Make sure you only save data on the server and not locally.
