compress the ETL file as 7z/RAR, upload it (Skydrive, dropbox) and post a link.

your HDD is busy all the time.

the Queue Depth is 300, everything over 10 is bad.

The 5400rpm WD drive is simply too slow. Replace it with a SSD.

First thank for analysing.

Sir I don't blelieve that HDD sata 1 IS THE PROBLEM BECAUSE I have another pc with an hdd ata and I have made it to boot for 13s. THis pc has 2gbram but laptopo 4gb.The problem is showe when I installed iolo.

This hdd has inteliwrite. If i uninstall its driver and make defrag and then reinstall driver can solve the problem. Perhaps iolo inteliwrite and dell intelli write are crashed.

Also has any problem with drivers or any other proicess?

Hello MagicAndre1981.

 

I reduced my boot time from ~190 sec to 130-140 sec. It's a big difference, but still boot time is so long. I would be grateful if you could take a look at my .xml log and tell me what can cause that. I know there could be some rubbish which slow my computer, but maybe you will help me to localize it. :)

Thanks in advance.

Just as I thought, that it could be a HDD problem.

 

Anyway thx for analysis. :)

Hi guys!

Stupid question....after using performance tools to speed up windows...can they be removed?

leave them installed. They only need a few MB of HDD space and are very useful when you have issues

Of course not, they are WORM, you will need to completely wipe the hard disk to get rid of them. :whistle:

...you ask a silly question ...

Hello, i'm here to remember to all users that are in process of using this tutorial something important. This "boot up optimization" will be the cause of creation of a lot of useless files in your "Prefetch\ReadyBoot" folder. Those files will be created/renewed every system bootup, and will be fragmented exponentially from time to time. Those files have the extension *. Avail, *. Dqpafm, *. Dqpafmsg, *. Dqpa, *. Dqpaf.

I have asked some time ago @ the autor of this topic how to reverse this behaviour, and he simply doesn't have any idea how to do that. I was forced to reformat to fixing my OS.

I suggest to anyone who wants to cut some seconds to the bootup process, to open cmd and paste this string:

rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks

This is totally safe for your OS, no bad surprises as the method here posted. Goodbye.

I guess we got the idea by now :yes:.

 

Maybe you could ask the moderators to have a thread made sticky containing your "alternate tip" :unsure:, however, and just for the record:

 

 

 

since I used this method to speed up boot windows I noticed that on every reboot of the system is a creation of new files in the folder C: \ Windows \ Prefetch \ ReadyBoot. These files have the extension *. Avail, *. Dqpafm, *. Dqpafmsg, *. Dqpa, *. Dqpaf. the problem I have already posted some pages back is that I do not want these files are recreated on every reboot, when in every version of Windows 7 which has not been applied this method are not present and are not created by the system operating, as not necessary. these files also are increasingly fragmented and require unnecessary additional work hard drive. it is good to be suggested that in addition to how to use this method of speeding up the start, is also explained well how to undo the changes that the same has brought to the operating system. I look forward to answers.

 

Hello, i'm here now to post my suggestions in relationship of this topic and what i have quoted about my message.

I suggest simply of DO NOT USE THIS "TIP" for speeding up the boot of windows, cause it is simply useless, and you will go in my same situation, with this folder that's updating with those useless files that windows 7 DO NOT NEEDS, making only extra hard disk works after the user login. You also WILL NOT find any solution in the web for return back: those damned files will be refreshed every reboot, growing in fragmentation.

If you need to speed up your boot process, simply open the Command Prompt and paste this:

rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks

Wait some minutes, and Windows wil do EXACTLY the same thing, without the creation of those stupid files.

 

I have now reformatted my system after 3 days of hard work for transfering all my personal settings and software to a brand new pc, and i will NEVER use another time this called ^TIP^.

Bye all.

 

 

 

 

This tip DOES make boot a lot faster for all other users. Windows Prefetcher must learn the layout during the boots.

 

And no, your command doesn't do the same thing.
