  1. It's a co-worker's wife's computer. They just had it reset to original, and its a toshiba laptop. The only thing on it besides the OS were the toshiba utlities they bundle with it, and norton antivirus which I removed. Its running Windows 7 home premium 32bit, probably SP1 curiously it did produce a boot trace at some point, though theres no defrag Here
  2. Ok, this has been killing me for a day. Problem: Startup takes too long, and system is sluggish So, on a clean install (and no media or recovery partition to reinstall so i'm having to be very careful ><) I put in the SDK, ran the exe and went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Dfrg\ but there was no Dfrg, and no HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Dfrg\BootOptimize so I created Dfrg, and made HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Dfrg\BootOptimizeFunction and set: Enable: Y LcnEndLocation: 0 LcnStartLocation: 0 OptimizeComplete: No OptimizeError: Missing Registry Entries as per a different thread, and also ran defrag c: /u /v from an admin command prompt to make sure it works, and it does. I checked Superfetch next which wasn't running, and when I tried to start the service would give me a "cannot find file" error. so I set HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\SysMain to 0 (boot) I checked sysmain.dll, which was in the correct directory now Superfetch still wont start from services. But I plod on valiantly I added HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Prefetcher "BootFilesOptimized" with a D-Word data of 1 ran xbootmgr -trace boot -prepSystem -verboseReadyBoot from cmd.exe with admin priviledges.
