  1. @magicAndre Thanks! That worked.
  2. Every time I turn on my laptop, it runs a trace in the background, which creates the .etl files that completely fill up the rest of my SSD space (3-4Gb). How can I get it to stop tracing every time I boot?
  3. @Magic Andre, How would I do that? I checked the bios and the SATA is set to AHCI as opposed to Compatibility Mode. Thanks, SonofNun
  4. Hey, could you look at this boot trace. I am running off of a SSD and am not that impressed with how fast it boots. Boot trace Thanks, SonofNun
  5. @DuskDragon Yeah, bad hardware can be an unseen problem. Someone I know's computer took 8 minutes to start, and I couldn't figure out why since the specs were very impressive. Well, after he gave it to me to sell for him, I booted it up to test it and it took well under a minute. I was very surprised! The best I can figure is the reason for the long boot time was all the usb devices he had plugged into it. It would spend four minutes alone in the bios screen, I figue trying to make sense of all the usb devices he had plugged into it. Thanks, SonofNun

  7. @DuskDragon, Are there any changes you made recently (within the last couple of days)? What is taking the longest is the LogonUI.exe. Another one that you can turn off because it takes almost 12 seconds is the GoogleUpdater.exe. You can turn that off in msconfig.exe Maybe MagicAndre will know exactly whats wrong. He seems to be a wizard at this. Thanks, SonofNun
  8. Thanks. I want to understand this topic inside and out so I can be doing this for other people without having to mess with the waiting involved with asking on this forum. (Not that I don't appreciate what you do to help, but if I am doing this on someone else's computer who wouldn't be able to do it themselves, I wouldn't have their computer long enough to wait for a response from here.) Thanks again for your help.
  9. @MagicAndre If my value for bootDoneViaPostBoot = 46951, that means it took almost 37 seconds to finish booting right? Thanks, SonofNun
  10. Laz, After looking at your boot trace, several main things pop out at me. 1) Roxio takes a total of around 25 seconds to start, so, depending on whether you use it, you can either uninstall it, or use MSConfig to turn off the startup of this program 2) Google updater should be turned off. It takes 5 seconds to start up. 3) I am not sure what facebook update is, but it takes a few seconds and probably is unnecessary. 4) OK, here is the big one. A WMI service takes 190 seconds, and a second WMI service takes 89 seconds, and a third one takes 76 seconds. I am not sure why there are three of these running and why they take so long, but it is unusual and we should try to find a fix for that. 5)Acrodist.exe (Adobe acrobat distiler) takes 52 seconds to start up. Try and see if you can shut it off using either the Services console or MSConfig If I understand it correctly, I think it shows that it takes around 4 minutes to complete startup. Does that sound right? How long have you used this installation of Windows? Thanks, SonofNun
  11. Try changing the directory in the command prompt to the "temp" folder. (In case you don't know how to do this, type - cd c:\temp - and hit enter.) Then you can run the command to convert it to xml. Thanks, SonofNun
  12. Here is the link to the ETL: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22446065/boot_BASE%2BCSWITCH%2BDRIVERS%2BPOWER_1.zip
  13. I am not sure that I am following you. There is no graph in the etl labeled Boot Phase.
  14. It didn't appear to be at full the whole time. Just for a little at the beginning 1/5th. then it was around normal. Either way, what do I do to fix it? Thanks, SonofNun
  15. After doing that, mine works . . . Sort of. Now it completes the trace without any errors, but when I try to analyze the trace, I get the following error: Any ideas?
