Thanks for the quick reply!
I found that link shortly after posting the trace, and did the optimization, I did it again for good measure. Here is the new trace, it does not look as though much has improved.
but it is!
I can now see, that you have 2 hanging services:
AudiEndpointMapper and TermService.
So update the Via sound drivers, please.
Next, the automatisc startup all the applications causes the slowdown. The trace was not able to capture all data, so remove all unneeded startup tools. use AutoRuns to disable them.
