    Default Laptop slows down after FAT32 to NTFS conversion?

    Dear all, after acquiring an ASUS Z92T laptop from DSE and installing several programs onto drive C:, I realised that the HDD format was FAT32. So I took advantage of a HDD-format conversion feature provided by the laptop to change it to NTFS. However, after the operation has been executed and having the laptop restarted, I realised that the laptop has taken up significantly longer time to startup; I have tried defragmenting the HDD using Diskeeper 9, but to no avail. I have also tried tinkering around with the startup programs and services, but the speed did not improve. It would be good if someone can help me out with this. Thanks!


    P.S. I haven't tried malware-scanning yet, but I doubt the fault lies within there.

    [edit] The laptop comes with 1 GB of RAM.
