PC takes forever to boot (Windows 10)

Lately my PC has been taking forever to boot up. Sometimes a game will mess up in a certain way where I'm forced to restart the PC by holding the power button and it feels like it takes 10 minutes to fully boot up.

The hard drive that has windows on it is always operating at 100% for like 5 minutes after boot up. I often just put the computer to sleep now since it takes so long to boot up from a shut down.

I have disabled everything that I find unnecessary when you go to task manager and then start up. Any other suggestions?

PC Specs:
-GTX 1070 EVGA
-i5 7600K
-16GB RAM
-1TB Hard Drive (Windows 10 installed on this one)
-500GB Hard Drive

As far as I know, everything is up to date in software.

I did have a trojan about a year ago but I was able to get rid of it, as far as i know.

I have it set to do quick scans and nothing is ever found, I also do full scans every once in a while and again nothing is found. I hardly download anything off the internet, I usually only download off of Steam/Origin/Uplay/windows store or any trust worthy applications. I also just ran a health check and no errors were found.
