Your Windows boots in 36s to the desktop and is fully booted in 65s:
<timing bootDoneViaExplorer="36634" bootDoneViaPostBoot="75334"
What I can see is that 2 services start slowly:
<serviceTransition name="MSSQL$SQLEXPRESS" group="" transition="start" totalTransitionTimeDelta="8525"
<serviceTransition name="WSearch" group="" transition="start" totalTransitionTimeDelta="8668"
if you don't need MS SQL Server Express all the time, start the service on demand.
The largest delay is caused by starting all apps at logon. Do you really need all those Logitech tools at startup?
I don't, they must have popped in with Visual Studio, or something else.
How many Logitech tools do I have at startup? I thought I only had one (setpoint). I thought I disabled like my webcam, and what not. I'll disable the entry in MSCONFIG for Logitech anyways.
What other applications are starting up? I try to keep stuff clean in MSCONFIG and services. I'm new to working in the services section so I'm sure there must be stuff I'm missing. But in MSCONFIG I only have:
Realtek HD Audio Manger
HD Audio Background Process
Microsoft Windows Operating System
JMB36X IDE Setup
USB 3.0 Monitor
I feel like one of those audio items can be disabled, but I'm not sure which one. The Windows OS one is for gadgets, JMB I'm pretty sure is for my external esata drive, and I think I need the USB3 for my USB3 ports to work. Dropbox I guess could be disabled, and I could just start it up manually, but I like the convenience of it starting on its own. Since I use it a lot.
But, I'll disable some of the above, and see what happens. Are there any other stuff starting up that I did not mention above?
Thanks for the boot trace decrypt https://dl.dropbox.c.../boottrace2.rar
There is a more updated boot trace. After turning some stuff off, and some more.
