SMSSInit is slow (81s):

- <interval name="SMSSInit" startTime="8115" endTime="89908" duration="81793">

compress the ETl, upload it to mediafire.com and send me the link.

C:\Windows\system32\autochk.exe scans your HDDs and this causes the delay. Check the SMART values of your OCZ-VERTEX2 and your 4 SAMSUNG HD103SJ Drives.

After opening the summary_boot.xml I get the message

The XML page cannot be displayed

Cannot view XML input using style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Invalid at the top level of the document. Error processing resource 'file:///C:/Temp/summary_boot.xml'. Line 1, Position 1

Boot action failed: Could not locate ExplorerReady event or mark.

from the trace I can see that the System process causes some high CPU usage and the causing function is:

ntkrnlmp.exe! ?? ::FNODOBFM::`string'

Run this:

xbootmgr -trace boot -traceFlags BASE+CSWITCH+DRIVERS+POWER+LATENCY+DISPATCHER+PERF_COUNTER+PRIORITY+REGISTRY+FILE_IO+FILE_IO_INIT -stackWalk Profile+ProcessCreate+CSwitch+ReadyThread+Mark+ThreadCreate -resultPath C:\TEMP

this captures some more data (CSwitch, ReadyThread, CPU usage, threadcreate).

But you should still check the HDDs and your OCZ SSD. Also create a full back of the Systemdrive and install the 1.35 firmware, your 1.11 is a bit old:

1 thing I can see is that the service LANManagerService starts extremely SLOW. This is the service which you need to share files. Do you share files in your network? If not, set the starttype to "on demand/manual".

Also, do you run the HDD and SSD in IDE or AHCI mode? If IDE change to AHCI.

Can someone please have a look at this tracefile: Tracefile

I have an SSD installed and disabled various services: search, prefetch, hybernate etc.

Thanks a lot!

Edit: Forgot to tell this PC is part of a domain.
