Your Windows satrts extremely slow:

timing bootDoneViaExplorer="532027" bootDoneViaPostBoot="577827"

532s to the desktop and 567s to boot completely (over 8 minutes!)

starting the services is extremely slow:

<services autoStartStartTime="54996" autoStartEndTime="498464" autoStartDuration="443467">

The Multimedia Class Scheduler Service takes 43s to start:

MMCSS" group="AudioGroup" transition="stop" totalTransitionTimeDelta="42865"

Do you use the latest audio drivers? If not update them.

Next the Akamai service takes 20s to start.

serviceTransition name="Akamai" group="" transition="start" totalTransitionTimeDelta="20941"

The largest slowdown are the SQL Server services:

serviceTransition name="MSSQLSERVER"  totalTransitionTimeDelta="417300" 
 serviceTransition name="MSSQLServerOLAPService"  totalTransitionTimeDelta="401192"
serviceTransition name="ReportServer"  totalTransitionTimeDelta="407688" 

Do you need them directly at start? If not, set the starttyp to "on demand /manual" and start them via CMD script (net start MSSQLSERVER, net start MSSQLServerOLAPService and net start ReportServer)

teamviewer is also very slow:

serviceTransition name="TeamViewer7" totalTransitionTimeDelta="390061"

Next you run your Toshiba MK6465GSX in IDE mode (IDE\DiskTOSHIBA_MK6465GSX), try AHCI if possible.

Also look at the optimization I linked in the first topic. Install the hotfixes, reboot and run the optimization command. If this doesn't speedup Windows, make a new trace and this time upload the compressed ETL file.

<interval name="ZeroHiberFile" startTime="11535" endTime="59594" duration="48059" /> 

you delete the Page file at shutdown.

Run regedit.exe, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management and set the value of ClearPageFileAtShutdown to 0

this fixes it.

I've been having problems where this computer I just built was taking a very long time to boot even though the windows install is on an SSD.
My trace is here:
http://dl.dropbox.co...5/boottrace.zip

I've notice that the Profiles process is likely the problem, but I have no clue how to fix this.

My SSD is drive C: and it holds the windows install and various programs that I want to be able to run very quickly.
My Data HDD is drive E: and it has other data as well as my Users and ProgramData directories.

To move my Users and ProgramData directories onto the HDD from the SSD I used this method: http://www.sevenforu...stallation.html

Windows booted very quickly just a few days ago, but yesterday and today it has been taking nearly 6 minutes or more to hit the desktop. Any help would be appreciated.

@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

The only recent thing I've installed is the Tribes Ascend beta. ( I put it on the HDD)
I really don't think that is the problem since other people I play with who are on Windows 7 aren't having this problem.

MSE causes a huge CPU and Disk usage during logon. Disable MSE and try again.

Here is my new trace:
http://dl.dropbox.co...15/bootlog2.zip

I uninstalled MSE, restarted once and then ran this boot trace (a second restart). It was still a very long boot taking about four and a half minutes.
Hopefully I can reinstall MSE at some point without this problem continuing.

Anything you can suggest would be greatly appreciated.

Please use Process monitor, active the boot loggging inside ProcMon and next run the boot trace command. After the restart, start ProcMon agaian and save the log as PML. Please upload the new trace + ProcMon log.

Hi, I have a problem putting to sleep my pc. I have windows 64 bit since I assembled this pc, but one day I started experiencing this problems. When I try to put it to sleep it takes at least 10-15 seconds, then it seems working and turning off, but after like 5 seconds it turns on again. What can I do? I tried to use "xbootmgr -trace standby -traceFlags BASE+CSWITCH+DRIVERS+POWER -resultPath C:\TEMP" but it tells me that xbootmgr is non recognized as a valid command.

You must install the Windows Performance Toolkit first. Check the first post for the link to the extra topic.

I think I found the cause of my problem and it was hardware, not software.
When I turned on my computer today the HDD was unreadable. I'm just glad it failed early before I had any significant amount of data on it.

Thanks for your quick responses.

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

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 is ok. You can improve the performance by using AHCI, not IDE/ATAPI mode:

IDE\DiskOCZ-NOCTI

Also look in the trace if MSE causes high CPU or Disk IO usage. Postboot is with 18s very long, so check if you really need all tool at startup.

@Magic Andre,

How would I do that? I checked the bios and the SATA is set to AHCI as opposed to Compatibility Mode.

Thanks,

hmm, this is strange. I have no idea why IDE is shown.

check startup with autoruns to reduce the 18s delay.

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?
