all other defrag tools are crap and SLOW down Windows!

Test other AV tools. For me MSE is also slow. Try Avira AntiVir as a free AV.

Hi there guys.Perfect tutorial that helped me a lot!

I have a quick question though.

Before i format my compturer(and before i even know the existance of this forum,hence the tutorial) my reboot time(i say reboot because i used to mesure my reboot time via a .bat script) was 51 sec.

Now after the format and after all the instranctions that i followed correctly(even installed the hotfixes) my reboot time is 55sec.

So i'm asking you what can i do to drop below 51 sec that i had before format and before even touching the prefetch etc etc.

Here is the link that my boot time is right now.

Thanks in advanced.

how did you measure the reboot time?

Also let the trace run longer. You clicked finish after the you see it on the desktop. Let it count down from 120s to 0.

With this .vbs script (open a notepad and paste it there, the save as .vbs)

Option Explicit

On Error Resume Next

Dim Wsh, Time1, Time2, Result, PathFile, MsgResult, MsgA, AppName, KeyA, KeyB, TimeDiff

MsgA = "Please close all running applications and click on OK."

KeyA = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\RestartTime\"

KeyB = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\RestartTime"

AppName = "ReBoot-Time"

Set Wsh = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

PathFile = """" & WScript.ScriptFullName & """"

Result = wsh.RegRead(KeyA & "Times")

if Result = "" then

MsgResult = Msgbox (MsgA, vbOKCancel, AppName)

If MsgResult = vbcancel then WScript.Quit

Wsh.RegWrite KeyA & "Times", left(Time,8), "REG_SZ"

Wsh.RegWrite KeyB, PathFile, "REG_SZ"

Wsh.Run "cmd /c Shutdown -r -t 00", false, 0

else

Wsh.RegDelete KeyA & "Times"

Wsh.RegDelete KeyA

Wsh.RegDelete KeyB

TimeDiff = DateDiff("s",Result,left(Time,8))

MsgBox "Your computer reboots in " & TimeDiff & " seconds", VbInformation, AppName

end if

wscript.Quit

i indeed didn't let it finish sooner so i will do it again now :)

ignore the script. It generates unreliable results. Take a look at the Eventlog to see how long it takes to boot or run a trace and generate the summary XML.

Hello!

I'm new here and i saw a lot of solved cases here, so I have decided to post my case too.

I have a Dell Inspiton N7010 Laptop with a 5400rpm WD HDD and Windows 7 x64. The boot time is taking too long. I have to wait about 3 minutes until i can get to work. The Welcome Screen stays for about 2 minutes while the HDD led remains lit.

A couple of months ago, I didn't have this problem. The Welcome screen took about 15 sec to load.

If i disable all services through msconfig and boot, Windows loads very fast.

I'm waiting for some suggestions...

run the optimization from the first post and if this doesn't speedup Windows make a full boot trace from here:

zip this trace and upload it.

I've ran the optimization from the first post and i've noticed an improvement, but still, the Welcome screen takes about 1 minute to load, so i've uploaded the etl log.

The SQL Server Express service takes 27s to start that's why you see the delay at the Logon Screen. From what I see the SQLExpress is installed by the Sony Media Manager. So if you don't use the Sony software remove the SQL Server to improve the boot speed.

I remember installing Sony Media Manager, but I didn't use it so I uninstalled it a long time ago.

I can see, thogh, the service SQL Server (SONY_MEDIAMGR2) and probably other SQL Express services, but how can I uninstlall them? I cannot find them in the Uninstall list (and I have a lot of SQL servers installed there)

You should have a Microsoft SQL Server entry in "Add/remove programs" select to uninstall it and here you should choose which instance you want to uninstall.

I uninstalled Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express and it asked me if i want to remove Sony media manager and i said yes. The service is now gone, but the Welcome Screen delay didn't improve at all.
